Hip Replacement Surgery - What To Expect?

Hip Replacement Surgery - What To Expect?

Hip replacement is a common surgical procedure that you may need if your hip has been damaged due to arthritis, a fracture, or other serious conditions. All of these can make common activities like walking or getting in and out of a chair very painful and difficult. If you are facing the same difficulties despite medications, changes in lifestyle and physiotherapy, it is time to go in for a hip replacement.

Causes of Hip Pain
The most common cause of long-term hip pain and disability is arthritis.

  1. Osteoarthritis- This is an age-related problem that causes wear and tear of the hip joint. Usually, older people get this arthritis. What happens in osteoarthritis is that the cartilage cushioning the bones of the hip wears away. The bones then rub against each other leading to hip pain and stiffness.
  2. Rheumatoid arthritis- RA is an autoimmune disease in which the synovial membrane in the hip joint becomes inflamed. This damages the cartilage causing pain and stiffness.
  3. Post-traumatic arthritis- This arthritis follows a hip injury or fracture. In this the cartilage may become damaged leading to hip pain and stiffness.
  4. Avascular necrosis- The lack of blood to the femoral head can cause the surface of the bone to collapse resulting in arthritis.
  5. Childhood hip disease may also require this surgery.

Hip replacement- How it’s done?
Hip replacement surgery is one of the safest operations in medicine. The hip is a ball –and –socket joint and in a total hip replacement the damaged bone and cartilage is removed and replaced with metal or plastic prosthetics. Hip replacement surgery is usually performed in a traditional manner or using a minimally-invasive technique. The main difference between the two lies in the size of the incision for surgery.

During standard hip replacement surgery, a patient is given general anesthesia. This is followed by a cut along the side of the hip after which the surgeon moves the muscles connected to the tip of the thighbone to expose the hip joint. Post this the ball portion of the hip joint is removed by sawing off the thigh bone. After this, the artificial joint is attached to the thighbone by using either cement or a special material. The surgeon then removes any damaged cartilage from the surface of the hipbone and attaches the replacement socket portion to the hip bone. Most hip replacement surgeries today are performed using the standard technique however; the minimally-invasive technique, is getting more and more popular. In this, the surgeon makes one to two cuts from 2 to 5 inches long and then carries out the same steps like in the standard hip replacement surgery. The patient may have to stay in hospital for 3-6 days post a hip replacement surgery and has to undergo long-term physiotherapy to attain normal use of the hip joint.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I have back pain from 3 days am crying with pain day and night. Please advice me?

I have back pain from 3 days am crying with pain day and night. Please advice me?
Back pain can result from bad posture, a sudden jerky movement, a lumpy mattress or poor lifting techniques. It can also be caused by injury in a work place, by a sports accident or by muscular spasms. There are also many diseases and pathological conditions that can lead to back pain. These include abdominal or pelvic disease, anxiety, arthritis, cervical or lumbar spondylosis, dermatological problems, kidney disease, rheumatic conditions, tumours and scoliosis. Our modern, sedentary lifestyles have a profound effect on the development of back pain; indeed one of the most effective ways of preventing it is simply to stay active. An average adult in the India spends at least two hours a day in front of a computer screen or television set, and back problems can be triggered if they don’t sit properly. In an age of mobile phones and computer games, such troubles are increasingly inflicting children of school age as well. Top tips for back care: For back pain, better to see your Doctor sooner than later. Take regular exercise – your Doctor can say what’s right for you. Hours in one position can cause problems – avoid computer ‘hump’. During repetitive tasks, vary your rhythm and take frequent breaks. Adjust car seats and on long journeys, take regular breaks to stretch. Pace yourself with heavy work such as gardening – don’t risk a disc! Avoid strain when lifting, particularly small children and shopping. Your bed could be part of the problem. Seek Doctor advice on choosing a new one. Take a hot bath or shower, soaking in a hot tub, or using a heating pad, hot water bottle, or heat wrap that provides continuous, low-level heat are all ways to bring healing warmth to your lower back.

You may have to continue medication for Uricemia and keep blood tested rregularly when the treatment is under progress. You may temporarily stop medication when after a prolonged treatment Uric Acid is normal If pain does not subside even temporarily even then, There may be another cause for multiple large size joints. Your weight will have to be brought down first . These things should be under the direct supervision and advice of a well equipped Orthpedic Centre near your place like Goa, Manipal Hubli or Belgaum. Remain under their care permanently. Medical treatment already taken may prove to be harmful to you.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis is a condition in which shoulder movements get progressively decreased, it is commonly associated with diabetes although association with other conditions is also known. Treatment includes intensive physical therapy, short course anti inflammatory medications according to one's suitability and maintenance of calcium/ vitamin d metabolism. If there is no relief, then we might have to consider arthroscopy of your shoulder to improve your movements. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Goodevening lybrate-user what I would advice you to do is to start with a few strengthening exercises for your leg. You need to get a proper gait (walking training) done for yourself. Always make sure that you place your heel first and then your foot should be flat. Walking properly with the right type of posture is very important. You could also do a fermentation of heat and cold that will also reduce your pain.

Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful Do hot fomantation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck, back & general exercises.

I am having back pain for last three months. Please suggest me some medicines to cure it?
Common causes of back pain are bad posture, injury to back during certain activities and lack of exercise. You should try some physiotherapy and learn about proper posture. Follow office ergonomics. Control weight and do regular back strengthening exercises. If pain persists then you need to visit a spine aurgeon for complete clinical evaluation.

I got lateral minucus tear in july 2011 while playing football. I underwent arthroscopic surgery in my left knee in September 2013. Before surgery, mri report said lateral miniscus tear with cyst in my left knee. After surgery in manipal hospital Bangalore, my life became hell and I faced knee pain, stiffness, bike riding knee pain, could not stand for 30 min continously, could not use indian toilet, prolong sitting impossible on chair etc etc. None of these problems I had before surgery. Before surgery Dr. Claimed that I can play football within 6 months. After 6 months of surgery that is on apr 2014 I did mri which said no fresh tear with cmp condromalecia patella level 1 and ra blood test negative with vitamin d correction needed. I lost all hope with my surgeon and believed that only for money he did surgery to me and ruined my life. I had tendocare medicine from september 14 till apr 15 and simultaneously homeopathy. Now my condition is better as compared to aug 14 case. I believe it's cos of homeopathy medicine. Past one month I m doing isometric knee strengthen exercise including vmo at home. These physiotherapy I did post surgery for 3_4 months but as pain was still there so I stopped these strengthen exercise but I re started them last month as my injured knee thickness is half of my correct right leg. My condition is better now say 5/10 but prolong sitting in office or rainy season cold increases pain n stiffness. I feel burning sensation, stiffness, not able to bend knee fully, pain around knee cap, can't walk for say 30 mins without pain, uneasiness and pain at the bottom of knee cap. Now my only remedy is to apply knee pain killer oil and exercise and take homeopathy medicine. I wonder if I can be equally fit as I was before surgery. I doubt if surgery was needed for me at first place but that was already done 1 yr 8 months back. I request a orthopaedic doctor to advise me as in what is my knee problem and how I can get rid of it Thank you.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. As you had lateral meniscus tear with a cyst, if you had symptoms correlating with your mri findings, then there is a valid reason for arthroscopic knee surgery which was done in your case to excise the cyst and balance the meniscus. Also fresh mri revealed no tears in your knee structures, so I think the surgery was well done and your mensicus was balanced well. So there is no need to crib about it at all. I think what you lacked was a scientific approach to post operative rehabilitation which is poorly understood in our country. Anyway now you have improved and your symptoms are due to chondromalacia of knee, atleast that is what you have written. Again for this physical therapy is mainstay of treatment with strengthening of quadriceps, stretching of other group muscles - adequate calcium and vitamin d intake - daily brisk walks for 2-3 km per day in morning - you should actually avoid indian toilet, sitting cross legged till the time you have pain. - you can use a gentle anti inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or one which suits you on a sos basis for some time. Let me know in 2-3 weeks time how you are feeling, so that we can discuss and take your case forwards. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hello lybrate user, - as preventive measures you can follow few things like - maintaining position of back while sitting, traveling etc -careful while lifting heavy weight without back support - avoid some foods like potato, brinjal, peas, etc which are told to avoid in ayurveda - daily application if some medicated oils keeps our body strengthy. - for the present pain, apply mahanarayana taila and do hot fomentation for 15 min for 10 days. -if it is muscular pain then it will relieve by that time, if not go for x-ray to rule out bone or disc involvement thank you.

Apply hot fomentation twice daily. Avoid bending in front. Postural correction- sit tall, walk tall. Extension exercises x 15 times x twice daily - lying on tummy, take left arm up for 3 seconds, then bring it down, right arm up for 3 seconds, bring down. Bring right leg up, hold for 3 seconds, bring it down. Then right leg up and hold for 3 seconds and bring it down. Repeat twice a day- 10 times. Bhujang asana -- lie flat on your stomach, keeping the palms out, bend the neck backward, take a deep breath and while holding it for 6 seconds, raise the chest up. Release breath and relax your body. Repeat the exercise 15 times twice daily. Core strengthening exercises- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Dear lybrate-user, Namaskar, Body form and physique is generally decided genetically. However your efforts can modify it substantially. Join a Gymnasium ,do exercises and take guidance of a nutritionise-Dietician for gainig body weight. Get proper treatment for eosinophilia from a Chest and allergy specialist. Take Tab. Carnitor (Win medicare) 2 tab. Twice a day for 15 days and then 1 tab twice a day for two and a half month for your sexual shortcomings. Take care.
