Total hip replacement
The hip joint is a ball and socket joint. It is a very important joint as it allows a great deal of movement but is also weight-bearing. As a result of this, it is often prone to wearing away. This is a simplified reason as to why arthritis occurs.
Arthritis can be a very painful disorder which may slow down your mobility/ walking or even stop you from sleeping.
A hip replacement is an operation which replaces the severely damaged hip joint with an artificial ball and socket that does the function of the natural joint.
