Total Hip Replacement in Pune
Total hip replacement consists of replacing a hip joint that has been damaged by osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fractures or other reasons.
Hip joint replacement is one of the most usual and successful procedures. The surgery replaces the two elements of the joint, the femoral head and the acetabulum.
The procedure usually lasts about one hour and requires about 4 days of hospitalisation.
Ranka Orthopedic Hospital offers many different types of prostheses, depending on the patient’s age, the morphology of his hip and the specific needs of each person.
Before Undergoing the Procedure for Total Hip Replacement
Patients should undergo a preliminary test to evaluate the specific characteristics of their intervention.
Furthermore, they must undergo a standard preoperative study that includes blood tests, electrocardiogram, and other tests if required.
Also, if they have any chronic illness or regularly take medications, especially anticoagulants, they should inform the surgeon before surgery.
After Undergoing the Procedure for Total Hip Replacement
Patients will wear a compression stocking to the hip for at least three months after the operation.
It’s good to sleep with a cushion placed between the legs to avoid a dislocation of their hip.
Patients must start moving carefully on the first day. They should follow the instructions from the surgeon.
Patients will need a walking frame for the first days and crutches later to avoid an overload in the joint.
A correct rehabilitation after Total Hip Replacement is very important for the recovery. Ranka Orthopedic Hospital offers patients the opportunity to do so at our specialist centre in Pune.
