FAQ

What Goes on Inside Your Body During a Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement?

Have you wondered what exactly happens during a metal-on-metal hip replacement surgery? The following information will help you understand what is going on inside your body during the surgery so you will know how and why a hip replacement works.

People need hip replacements because the ball and socket of the hip joint are no longer working properly together. Your hip joint has natural cartilage and lubricant that is supposed to keep the joint loose and yet intact so the ball can rotate inside the socket. You experience hip pain when that cartilage wears down (and does not regenerate like it is supposed to) and/or the natural lubricant is not working properly.

You can ask your doctor if you can see model hip joints or actual prostheses like a metal-on-metal hip replacement implant or a ceramic-on-ceramic implant. Your doctor can show you how the joint is supposed to function and even show you where your hip joint is failing. This will help you understand what has been happening inside your body and what the new hip replacement implant will do for you.

After the Anesthesia
Your surgeon will make an incision big enough to allow the proper work to be done. The surgeon will use drainage mechanisms to keep the surgery site operable.

Removing the Damaged Bone and Cartilage
Using a specialized saw and accompanying machinery, the surgeon will either resurface or completely cut out the damaged hip joint. In some cases the hip surgery will only require the implanting of a new ball and stem, attached to the femur (thighbone), but in other cases you will need a new socket as well, which will be attached to the pelvis bone structure. Any dead or damaged cartilage will also be removed.

Implanting the Prosthesis
Your new hip replacement implant will be either cemented or press-fit (grafted to the bone using porous material) to the existing bone. The implant will be properly supported to encourage bonding or grafting.

Completing the Hip Replacement Surgery
When the implant is securely implanted and supported, your surgeon will stitch you back up and start the process to bring you back up to consciousness. You will receive antibiotics and pain medication intravenously so that you will feel as little discomfort as is possible when you wake up.

Understanding Your Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Surgery
Any hip replacement surgery is considered major surgery, but they are also considered routine. Hip replacements usually go quite well. While they require significant rehabilitation after the surgery has been completed, most patients report significant improvement in comfort and mobility. While no hip joint prosthesis can last forever, they usually last a long time, and most patients will not require a second replacement surgery in their lifetime.
