Hip replacement surgery

When the other therapies, such as pain medications; have failed, hip replacement surgery is usually the answer. If you experience severe pain, loss of motion or deformity of your hip joint, unable to do your activities of daily living; and the non-operative methods have not yielded the desired results; you may require hip replacement surgery.

In a total hip replacement surgery,the painful parts of the damaged hip are replaced with artificial hip parts called prosthesis, a device that substitutes a joint. The prosthesis consists of metal components: a socket, ball, and stem. The outer shell of the socket is usually made of metal and the inner shell consists of plastic, or ceramic: or the entire socket may be plastic. Patients suffering from a variety of hip disorders are regularly treated at Apex and trauma Hospital. 

Total Knee Replacement Surgery

If non-surgical treatments are ineffective,total knee replacement surgery can be considered as a safe and effective procedure to relieve pain and help you resume normal activities. It also helps to correct the deformity. The results of knee replacement are predictable and long-lasting. Also because of the developments in anesthesia, pain control and physiotherapy, one can resume back to normal routine activities fairly soon after the surgery.
