Hip replacement – an introduction
The hip joint is one of the most pivotal when it comes to our range of movement. It is, unfortunately, also one of the most susceptible to wear and tear, which is why hip replacement operations are increasingly being performed in the UK. There are a number of factors that can lead to a hip replacement being required such as the following:
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Fracturing of the femur
- Loss of blood supply to femur
Hip replacement – new lease of life
Having a hip replacement operation can give patients a new lease of life as it frees them from the pain that had led to their need for the procedure. Medical experts agree that hip replacement operations are beneficial to those with problem hips as they can improve mobility, reduce joint pain and improve standard of life. Hip replacement procedures are being improved upon all the time and new prosthetics are being developed continually with increased levels of durability and mobility. For those whose lives are a constant battle due to the pain emanating from their hip complaint, a hip replacement operation may just be the answer to their problem.
