What is Hip Replacement Surgery?
Every day, your hip joint propels you forward; moving you from your car, to the gym, to work, to soccer practice. The hip joint is made up of a femoral head (the ball) which moves in the socket (acetabular shell).
Over time, your bones may start grinding together instead of using cartilage as a cushion resulting in pain and discomfort requiring a replacement.
Hip replacement surgery, also called total hip arthroplasty, involves removing damaged bone and cartilage surrounding the ball and socket joint.
Consensus Orthopedics offers patients a complete line of Total Hip Systems to relieve your pain and help you restore movement.
