Hip Replacement

It can be total hip replacement or hemi hip replacement.

Total Hip Replacement

Hip replacement has become necessary for your arthritic hip: this is one of the most effective operations known and should give you many years of freedom from pain.

Once you have arthritis which has not responded to conservative treatment, you may well be a candidate for total hip replacement surgery.


THR is indicated for arthritis of the hip that has failed to respond to conservative (non-operative) treatment.

You should consider a THR when you have

  • Arthritis confirmed on X-ray
  • Pain not responding to analgesics or anti-inflammatories
  • Limitations of activities of daily living including your leisure activities, sport or work
  • Pain keeping you awake at night
  • Stiffness in the hip making mobility difficult

Hemi Hip Replacement

A hemiarthroplasty is a surgical procedure that involves replacing half of the hip joint. Replacing the entire hip joint is called total hip replacement (THR).

A hemiarthroplasty is generally used to treat a fractured hip.

If you have a fractured hip or serious hip arthritis, a hemi hip replacement may be necessary to restore healthy hip function. If the femoral head is fractured, but the acetabulum is intact, you may be a good candidate for a hemiarthroplasty. Your doctor may recommend a HHR, depending on:

  • the health of your entire hip joint
  • your overall health
  • your expected life expectancy
  • your physical activity level
