Aakash Healthcare Super Speciality Hospital has an advanced staff to deal with treatments of Hip Replacement, our team is equipped with high-end technology is provided for the treatment of hip replacement, the advanced machinery includes Digital X-rays, 128 Slice CT, and Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
One of the most significant joints of our bodies is the hip joint, it bears the body's weight and providesbacking to the expansive muscles found in the pelvic and leg area. It is one of the most adaptable joints and is exceptionallysteady. Due to mishaps, childhood hip problems, or medical conditions, injuries are succumbed by the hip which leads to grave consequences. The science related to its treatments has developed in many realms. The professionals of hip replacement orthopaedics at Aakash Healthcare Super Speciality are eminently skilled and well-versed with the knowledge of hip and its associated functions.
Diagnosis procedure for Hip Replacement Treatment:
The orthopaedic specialistevaluates the data about patient’s health and inquiries are made about the degree of hip torment and its influence on normal conditions of patient’s life. Hip and related parts are examined and X-ray id performed. With the assessment of degree of injury/ distortion, different tests are prescribed including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Depending upon the reports, various treatments are performed, which include:
- Pharmaceutical medication
- Steroid Injections
- Hip replacement surgery
The latter one is recommended for grave injuries of the hip, it is generally done when all other treatment choices have neglected to give sufficient relief from pain.
Hip replacement surgery:
Depending upon the size of incision, hip replacement surgery is performed. It is an effective method a method in which a specialist surgically evacuates a damaged excruciating hip joint and replaces it with a metallic or plastic prosthetics.
The expertise in Hip replacement surgery is further concentrated on:
Cement less total hip replacement-
Cement less total hip replacement surgery or commonly referred to as THR, is a largely accepted option for treatment of arthritic diseases catering to the hip joint. During the surgery, the upper part of the femur (the head and neck) are substituted with a stemmed device and prosthetic head. THR has been acknowledged as a successful treatment for receiving the quality of life.
Hip resurfacing/Surface replacement arthroplasty-
During hip surfacing surgery, unlike in THR, the bone is preserved in this treatment,the preserved bone is shaped to admit a metal cap with a short stem. It is preferred because it facilitates for greater stability of the hip joint and a decreased risk of dislocation.
Cement less bipolar/Partial hip replacement-
For condition of ‘broken hip’, partial hip replacement is performed, it replaces the ball but the socket is held intact.
