Who needs a Total Hip Replacement?

Total hip replacement is recommended patients with end-stage hip osteoarthritis (hip is “worn out”) or a myriad of other conditions that result in destruction of the hip joint, such as fracture, avascular necrosis, hip dysplasia or even tumor.

What is a Total Hip Replacement?

The procedure is done by making an incision on the outside of the hip. The joint capsule is entered and the femoral neck is cut to remove the worn out femoral head (ball). The acetabulum (socket) is shaped with a reamer to re-create the hip socket and a titanium cup is placed with a plastic liner. This plastic liner is your “new cartilage”.

In most patients, Dr. Bremjit uses robotic and/or computer-navigation instruments to ensure that the components are placed in a position that is optimal for your specific anatomy.

A total hip replacement gives a friction free, painless surface to move your hip around on.
