The hip joint is the articulation area between the pelvis and the leg to support the weight of the body posture.
The main cause of hip joint disease is the wear of the articular cartilage: osteoarthritis.
Total hip replacement surgery substitutes the damaged bone and cartilage of the joint with polyethylene (a plastic material) or ceramic and metallic components.
The surgeon can access the hip joint via different paths, following a "conventional" surgical approach or a Minimally Invasive Surgical approach (MIS).
Before undergoing your total hip replacement, your doctor will prescribe a complete physical examination to assess your condition and to ensure that there are no factors that could interfere with your operation.
Specialized personnel will, from day one after the surgery, take care of your recovery by defining the most suitable rehabilitation program for you and accompanying you through the gradual recovery process.
Lead a healthy and active life.
In case of fever, throat inflammation or any infection, tell your doctor that you have a hip implant.
