It is considered a fairly safe and effective technique that can relieve pain, increase the range of motion, and lets one resume his or her a normal activity.

Ideal Candidate for Hip Replacement Procedure

Recommendations to have a hip replacement procedure are most often based on the patient’s degree of pain and disability. Age and weight are not determining factors. Ages from 50 to 80 years is the average age for most individuals undergoing complete hip replacement. However, orthopaedic surgeons evaluate each patient individually.

Preparation for Hip Replacement Surgery

Prior the procedure, the patient undergoes a complete physical examination so as to ascertain that the patient is in good health to have the surgery and complete the recovery process. A number of tests, including blood and urine samples, an electrocardiogram (EKG), and chest X-rays may be required to help in the planning of the surgery.

The patient should make sure that his/her skin does not have any infection, and if any, should contact the doctor for treatment before surgery. The patient should give details on any medications currently taking so as to be advised which one to continue taking and which one to stop.

Additionally, the patient should plan ahead of time by doing some modifications and structural adjustments in this/her home for easy navigation during recovery.

While at the hospital, the anesthesia team, with the patient’s help will determine the suitable anesthesia to be administered between general anesthesia (the patient is unconscious throughout the operation) or spinal, epidural, or regional nerve block anesthesia (only numbs from the waist down).

The prosthetic parts may be “press fit” into the bone so that the patient’s bone grows or they be anchored with the cement. However, the quality and strength of the patient’s bone are what will determine either of the two methods. Depending on the patient’s needs, the surgeon will pick the appropriate form of prosthesis.

The Hip Replacement Procedure

The hip replacement procedure typically lasts less than an hour, but can last up to 2 hours depending on the complexity. During the procedure, the surgeon will remove the damaged bone and cartilage and then insert new metal, plastic, or plastic implants in order to correct the alignment and functionality of the patient’s hip.

Upon completion of the surgery, the patient is moved to the recovery room where he/she will remain for several hours to be monitored closely during recovery from anesthesia.

Recovery After Hip Replacement

Physical therapy will be recommended after surgery to help improve blood flow and build muscle strength. An occupational therapist will help the patient learn and practice modified ways of doing daily tasks.

In order to assist the patient with his/her rehabilitation, arrangements for a visiting nurse, physical therapist, or home health assistant to do home visits may be arranged by the hospital.

FAQ's

A Hip Replacement, also called Hip Arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace a damaged or diseased hip joint with an artificial joint made of metal, plastic, or ceramic materials.

A hip replacement is usually recommended when the hip joint is severely damaged or arthritic (stage 4 arthritis), causing pain, stiffness, sleep interuption, and reduced mobility (especially reduced activities around normaly daily life) that cannot be managed with non-surgical treatments.

The best age for a hip replacement depends on the individual circumstances and factors. Although a Hip Replacement is often viewed as a procedure for the elderly, it depends on the severity of the hip joint damage, overall health, and lifestyle goals one wants to achieve or maintain.

The risks associated with hip replacement surgery may include infection, blood clots, dislocation of the new joint, nerve damage, and loosening or wearing out of the implant over time. However, with mordern techniques and materials, joints now last longer and the risks of complications are reduced

At Clemenceau Medical Center Hospital Dubai Joint Replacement Center, our UK & US Board, and subspeciality fellowship trained Hip Replacement Surgeons, are considered among the best in Dubai, having conducted over 6000+ successful joint replacement surgeries.

The benefits of hip replacement surgery include: - Reduced pain - Improved mobility and range of motion - Increased quality of life - Improved sleep and energy levels

Delaying a hip replacement can lead to increased damage to the hip joint which further increases pain, disability, reduced range of motion, weight gain, and potential complications from surgery.

Rapid recovery hip replacement, sometimes called day-case or same-day hip replacement, refers to a set of protocols that involves a minimally invasive approach, specialized implants if needed, and a comprehensive rehabilitation program to help patients mobilise and return to normal activities faster.

Yes. Although Hip replacement surgery is a routine surgery performed World-wide, it's still considered a major operation, and it requires general or regional anesthesia and careful monitoring during and after the procedure for optimal results.

In general an experienced hip replacement surgeon performs a hip replacement in approximatley 1 hour. Using the latest robotic techniques this can sometimes be reduced to around 45 minutes. However with more complex revision cases, up to 2 hours can be expected.

Depending on their progress and medical factors, most patients stay in the hospital for 1-3 days after a hip replacement surgery.

During the surgery you will not feel any pain due to the various pain management techniques used that include general or regional anesthesia, nerve blocks etc. After the hip replacement surgery there may be some discomfort that will be managed with pain medications, but most patients experience significant pain relief and improved function after surgery.

Recovery from hip replacement surgery varies based on the individual. Every heals at a different rate, it can take several weeks or months and includes rehabilitation and physical therapy exercises. It's important not to rush, and to follow a treatment plan customised to you.
