TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT
Total Hip Replacement has been one of the most successful surgical procedures from the last century and remains the gold standard for the treatment of hips with arthritis. It starts with the insertion of a stem into the femoral medullary canal. A femoral head is mated with the neck of the stem and articulates with the acetabular component fixed to the pelvic bone.
Several bearing materials are suitable for total hip replacements and all combinations of a metal or ceramic head articulating with polyethylene, metal, or ceramic liners are possible. We have been experts to several surgical techniques such as:
- AMIS (anterior minimal invasive surgery)
- Mini Posterior replacement hip surgery
which are tailored to our patients’ preferences and anatomical characteristics.
