The cost of Hip Surgery Depends on the following factors.
The final cost can only be calculated after Consultation with the doctor.
A surgeon removes the damaged components of your hip joint and replaces them with parts composed of metal, ceramic, or highly durable plastic during hip replacement surgery. This prosthetic joint (prosthesis) helps to reduce pain and increase function.
If your hip pain interferes with daily activities and nonsurgical treatments haven't helped or are no longer effective, hip replacement surgery, also known as total hip arthroplasty, may be an option for you. Arthritis deterioration is the most common reason for hip replacement.
It takes a 1- 2 hours to finish the procedure. To do a hip replacement, the surgeon will need to accomplish the following:
If you have severe pain, swelling and stiffness in your hip joint and your mobility is reduced. your hip pain is so severe that it interferes with your quality of life and sleep.
If you wait too long,the surgery will be less effective. As your joint continues to deteriorate and your mobility becomes less and less, your health will worsen.
Total hip replacement surgery takes about one and a half hours. Most patients also stay in the hospital for one or two days after the procedure.
You can expect to experience some discomfort in the hip region itself, as well as groin pain and thigh pain. This is normal as your body adjusts to changes made to joints in that area.
The best position to sleep in after total hip replacement is on your back with a pillow between your legs. You can also sleep on your non-operative side with two pillows lined between your legs.
