A hip replacement is a surgery in which the head of the femur and also the cartilage in the pelvic cavity, are removed. Its head is replaced to a metal sphere fixated to a stem which is anchored to the femur or the hip cavity. It is replaced with a plastic fixated to the pelvis or by a metal shell. This creates a very high-precision joint that doesn’t hurt.
¿How are the results of a hip replacement?
Usually, the results are very good. They can vary depending on the quality of the tissues, the severity of osteoarthritis, the level of activity and compliance with medical recommendations. The patient is usually pain-free and can go back to their normal everyday within a month.
A knee replacement is one of the most usual interventions in Spain nowadays, with around 50.000 knee surgeries per year. That’s because of the increase in life expectancy at Spain and also because this surgery has excellent results, helping the patients to improve their life quality.
Those who suffer from osteoarthritis at their knees have to endure intense pain which wakes them up at night. That makes impossible to live a normal life. Therefore, it’s important to implant a new replacement to substitute the injured knee. That’s the best option to relieve pain on the knee and to restore the mobility lost because of the pain.
