Hip Replacement (အရိုးအထူးကုခွဲစိတ်)
Solutions to Your Hip Problems from Bumrungrad International
Arthritis of the hip is a disease that wears away the cartilage in the ball-and-socket joint at the top of your leg bone (femur) and pelvis. This wear causes the two bones to scrape against each other, raw bone on raw bone. When this happens, the joint becomes pitted, eroded, and uneven resulting in pain, stiffness, and instability. In some cases, motion of the leg may be greatly restricted.
Conventional Total Hip Replacement (Hip Arthroplasty) is a long-established procedure for the treatment of Hip Arthritis. The purpose of total hip replacement is to remove the two damaged and worn parts of the hip joint- the hip socket (acetabulum) and the ball (femoral head) – and replace them with smooth, artificial implants called prostheses, which help make the hip strong, stable, and flexible again.
For younger, more active people needing a hip replacement there is a high chance that a traditional hip replacement will wear out during their lifetime and need to be replaced again.
A second replacement (called a revision) is much more difficult.
With time - sometimes as long as 20 years - the artificial joint will loosen and revision surgery will become necessary.
Risks can be reduced by following the surgeon's instructions before and after surgery.
You will receive an extensive pre-operative evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate for hip replacement. Candidates for Hip Arthroplasty will be valuated to assess the degree of disability, impact on your lifestyle and pre-existing medical conditions. The surgeon will make the final determination of each patient’s eligibility for the procedure after an examination and consultation with the patient. Commitment to a rehabilitation program is important since improvement of the new hip joint is largely determined by the patient’s effort.
