FAQ

What Physical Changes Have Happened That Require a Hip Replacement?

If you are experiencing hip pain that will not go away, is affecting your ability to perform everyday tasks such as dress yourself, walk, exercise, drive or just plain enjoy life, you may be considering a hip replacement. Have you wondered what has happened inside your hip joint that has caused these simple actions to become so painful? The following will help you understand how the hip joint works, why you are experiencing pain, and how a hip replacement can help.

How the Hip Joint Works
Your hip joint is made of two parts: the ball and the socket. The ball, which is attached to that big leg bone inside your thigh (that attaches to your knee), fits nicely in the socket, which is part of your pelvis bone structure.

A healthy hip ball will swivel smoothly around inside the hip socket, lubricated by natural lubricants and cushioned by cartilage. A healthy hip joint experiences a regular breakdown and regeneration of fresh cartilage.

Why You Are Experiencing Pain
If you are experiencing swelling of the joint or pain in your hip joint, the cartilage or bone is breaking down or rubbing against each other. In most cases, the cartilage has ripped or been damaged, leaving the bone to grind directly against bone without cushion or proper lubrication.

In most cases, the hip joint has been damaged by one of the following:

Deterioration of Cartilage
In some cases the cartilage starts wearing down, swelling or stops regenerating at the rate it should. This can present as a form of arthritis. The thinning or absence of healthy cartilage leaves the bone to grind against bone, which is very painful.

Bone Death
In some cases the blood flow to the bone is inhibited or obstructed, causing parts of the bone to die. As the bone material dies, it becomes weak and can shatter, deteriorate or come apart. This can cause problems with the shape and size of the ball and/or socket, causing tremendous pain or the inability of the joint to hold your weight.

Loss of Bone Density
Many of us, as we get older, lose bone density. This usually happens to women, but can happen to men, too. If you lose bone density in your hip bones, the ball and socket may wear down, crack, fracture or shatter, destroying your hip joint’s ability to function properly or bear your weight.

Understanding a Hip Replacement
If one of these things has happened to your hip joint, you may need a hip replacement. A metal-on-metal hip replacement implant is a prosthetic hip joint that is made of metal and can be inserted into your body, right where you old hip used to be (after the doctor removes it, of course.) The metal-on-metal hip replacement implant will be either cemented or press-fit into place so that it will function much like a natural hip joint would.

Be sure to ask your doctor about alternatives before signing up for a hip surgery. While this kind of surgery is generally very successful, it is still a major surgery and should be considered only if absolutely needed.
