There are two major types of Hip replacement surgeries in India. But different hip replacement components and surgical techniques might be used.
The following are the types of hip replacement surgeries, let me explain you these types quickly.
Total Hip Replacement :
Total hip replacement is a common procedure, which is preferred by patients from abroad as well.
Moreover, the cost of total hip replacement surgery in India attracts international patients as it is pocket friendly than other countries.
It is done to replicate the action of the natural hip joint. In a total hip replacement, the femoral head of the thigh bone (ball) and the acetabulum (socket) is replaced by artificial ball and socket.
The artificial joint components are fixed into the bone with acrylic cement. In case of younger and active patients, one part or sometimes both part are inserted without the cement, if the cement isn’t inserted then the surfaces of the implants are roughened and polished so that the bone grows onto them.
The bone will continue to renew on its own and make a long-lasting bond on the implants. At times when only one part is cemented, it’s known as a hybrid hip replacement.
The replacement parts maybe of plastic, metal or ceramic and these are used in different combinations.
Some of these combinations include metal-on-plastic, ceramic-on-plastic, ceramic-on-ceramic, and metal-on-metal.
The image below will make it more clear about the procedure of Total hip replacement surgery.
Partial Hip Replacement:
Partial hip replacement is also called as hip hemiarthroplasty. In partial hip replacement only femoral head (the ball) of the damaged hip is replaced with prosthetic material.
The acetabulum (socket joint) is not replaced.
This procedure is performed with high accuracy and is comparatively more reasonable than total hip replacement surgery cost in India.
Hip resurfacing :
In this type of surgery, the socket part of the joint and the ball of the thigh bone are resurfaced using a metal component unlike in the total hip replacement surgery where the head of the thigh bone is removed and replaced with an artificial ball.
Patients who undergo this type of surgery have low risk of dislocation and can indulge in a high level of physical activity compared to those who had a total hip replaced.
Hip resurfacing surgery in India is performed by skilled surgeons who have years of experience in this field. Further, this surgery is comparatively more affordable than total hip replacement cost in India.
Revision hip replacement :
It is a surgical procedure, which is performed to replace the worn out hip replacement implant.
This surgery is performed to manage the complications such as dislocation of the implants, infection of hip replacement, or fracture around the hip replacement.
Bilateral hip replacement:
When patient is facing degenerative problem in both the hips, then they may be considered for bilateral hip replacement. This surgery is performed simultaneously. However, this may increase the risk of blood Clotting, and blood loss during the surgery.
