About “Bilateral Hip Replacement”

Types of  Bilateral Hip Replacement

  • Simultaneous bilateral Hip replacement – When both knees are replaced simultaneously in surgery, it is known as a simultaneous knee replacement.
  • Staged bilateral Hip replacement  – In this surgery, both knees are replaced at the same time. This is known as staged bilateral knee replacement.
  • Hip resurfacing – Rise the authentic chamber and ball of the thigh bone. This kind of surgery has reduced the risk of disorder and patients can return to a better level of physical activity.
  • Minimally invasive total hip replacement – It decreases the chances of soft tissue damage which leads to reduced recovery time and also minimizes the possibility of post-operative issues.

 

Diagnosis for Hip Replacement Surgery :

  • Osteoarthritis Regressive joint disease that is also known as Depreciated Arthritis occurs when the normal soft part of the bone decreases, causing pain at the bone-to-bone connection.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis It is an autoimmune disease in which synovial membranes get inflamed. This membrane ultimately makes more synovial fluid that damages the articular cartilage.
  • Trauma It leads to severe hip injury or fracture that damages the articular cartilage.
  • Necrosis If there is an insufficient supply of blood to the ball part of the hip joint, the bone may fall down and bend out of shape.
  • Developmental dysplasia – It is an inherited disorder of the hip.
