FAQ

What to Expect During Total Hip Replacement Surgery
Total hip replacement surgery is a surgery to replace a damaged hip joint with new joint surfaces. The top portion of the femur, called the femoral head, is removed and a ball, often made of metal, is implanted, connected by a metal stem. A surgeon will resurface the hip socket, attaching a metal shell often lined in plastic. The damaged cartilage surrounding the hip joint is also removed.  There are a few options that surgeons have when performing a hip replacement. Your surgeon may attach the new artificial joint to the bones with or without cement.

Joints that are cemented are attached to the existing bone. The cement glues the prosthetic joint securely to the bone. Joints that are not cemented are still attached, but are coated with a porous material instead. This coating allows the bone to adhere to the new joint, filling the surface with new bone, allowing it to reattach naturally. Surgeons generally use general anesthesia on patients during joint replacement surgery, which means you won’t be awake during the procedure. Sometimes they will use regional anesthesia, allowing you to be awake and sleepy during the procedure, but you won’t feel anything. The choice between general or regional anesthesia is often up to your surgeon, and perhaps your own personal preference and general health.

Many surgeons advise patients to take antibiotics before and after hip replacement surgery to minimize the chances that you may contract an infection. If you need to have dental work performed, your surgeon will likely advise you to get it done before your joint replacement, and take antibiotics after your dental procedure. Infections can spread from one area of your body to another, including from your mouth to your hip implant, causing a serious infection and potentially a life-threatening condition.

Some surgeons are performing the surgery with minimally invasive surgical techniques. This allows for smaller incisions, a shorter recovery time and less blood loss. But using minimally invasive surgery for hip replacement also can be difficult to perform, and some surgeons may prefer traditional surgical methods for hip replacement. After your surgery, you’ll likely receive an IV of antibiotics and medicines to control your pain and reduce the potential for blood clots. You will likely have a catheter to help you urinate, and you’ll likely be wearing compression stockings on your leg to prevent blood clots. Rehabilitation may begin within a day of your surgery and you’ll be helped out of bed and learn to walk with a walker or crutches. It could be weeks before you’ll be able to walk again without a walker, crutches or a cane.
