FAQ

Anesthesia Options for Hip Replacement Surgery
Pain management before, during and after total hip replacement surgery are critical in the success of the surgical procedure. While we often think of hip replacement as a pretty common procedure, since hundreds of thousands of these surgeries are carried out each year in the United States, they are still considered a major surgery. It takes a great deal of skill to keep patients sufficiently pain-free and unconscious during the operation.
Unless you have strong objections to the types of sedation or anesthesia that your surgical team will give you, chances are you will go along with what the surgical team prefers to use for this type of surgery. If you trust them enough to remove a portion of your hip joint and replace it with an artificial joint, you should be able to trust them enough to keep you well sedated.

There are three basic types of anesthesia: general, regional and local.

Local anesthesia
Local anesthesia is a common form of anesthesia used, for example, when your dentist fills a cavity. It numbs the area that is being worked on.

General anesthesia
General anesthesia targets your brain, nervous system and your entire body, putting you into a deep sleep. It is usually given by an injection or inhaled. You’ll usually be given a breathing tube during the surgery and administered oxygen to help you breathe. General anesthesia is often given during major surgery that will take considerable time. General anesthesia tends to carry more risks. You may end up with a sore throat and a hoarse voice for a few days following your surgery because of the breathing tube. You also could suffer from headaches, drowsiness and nausea.

Regional anesthesia
Regional anesthesia puts you into a light sleep and numbs a specific part of your body, but does not affect your brain, nervous system and breathing. You are conscious with regional anesthesia, but will be sedated so you remain relaxed.

There are two types of regional anesthesia often used during hip replacement surgery, spinal blocks and epidural blocks. A spinal block involves an injection of anesthesia in your lower back. The injection is made within the fluid that surrounds the spinal cord. An epidural block involves a small catheter inserted into your lower back to deliver the anesthesia over an extended period of time.
