Hip Replacement - Experience A Lifestyle with Better Mobility

What is Hip Replacement?

Hip replacement, or hip replacement surgery is a medical procedure where a surgeon partially or completely replaces the hip joint with prostheses. Hip replacement surgeons often refer to this surgery as total hip replacement, total hip replacement protocol, and titanium hip replacement.

With pain, stiffness and inflammation in your hip or lower back, tasks as simple as bending to pick something can be extremely frustrating. But you can always prioritize transformation and choose a life that’s free from pain and trouble, with a safe and effective orthopedic procedure like hip replacement.

Anterior Hip Replacement Vs Posterior Hip Replacement.

Anterior hip replacement and posterior hip replacement are two different approaches to total hip replacement surgery. In anterior hip replacement, a surgeon implants an artificial hip from the front, making the smallest incision and removing damaged bones and cartilage.

In posterior hip replacement, a surgeon removes the bone from the back and implants the artificial hip. While the output in both of these approaches is the same, anterior hip replacement is recommended, slightly more complex, yet allows for shorter hospital stays and fewer restrictions in the long term.

Frequently Asked Questions!

While your doctor is the most suitable professional to decide which type of hip replacement you should opt for, we believe total hip replacement (also called total hip arthroplasty) is the best and most successful method of hip replacement. Other hip replacement solutions include partial hip replacement and hip resurfacing.

There are two approaches to performing a hip replacement surgery: anterior hip replacement and posterior hip replacement. Again, your panel comprising primary care doctors, surgeon and nurse are the ideal practitioners to decide the best type and approach of hip replacement for you.

The average recovery time after total hip replacement varies from patient to patient and case to case. A patient walking with or without assistance totally depends on the doctors’ recommendation. Most patients, however, are able to walk on their own the same day. Others with absolutely no care at home often take two to three days.

Hip replacement surgery takes an average of 1 hour and 30 minutes excluding the preparation time. We follow similar timelines for hip replacement surgery in Plano, Mesquite and Dallas clinics.

It is not mandatory to bring a hip replacement xray or assistive test or lab report when visiting a hip replacement surgeon in Dallas. However, you are recommended to follow your primary doctor’s advice if you have made your initial visits and have been suggested/asked to appear for a hip replacement xray.

There are three different types of hip replacement surgeries: total hip replacement (arthroplasty), partial hip replacement and hip resurfacing. These are NOT alternatives to one another.

More importantly, your doctor can evaluate your physical, emotional and orthopedic conditions to decide between conventional to less complex hip replacement methods for you.

Patients often consider exercises, medicines and supplements, diets and meal programs and therapies as alternatives to hip replacement surgery. Self-assessment at some stages is not recommended and these factors can not eliminate the need for a hip replacement surgery in most cases.

You are requested to bring the following documents when attending a medical appointment with a doctor, or a regular checkup with a nurse or your therapist:

  1. Valid ID or driver’s license
  2. Referral letter (if applicable)
  3. Prescriptions and list of medications, drugs or supplements you are using (if applicable)
  4. Last medical records, history papers, health cards
  5. Most recent medical test reports, copies of lab examinations, X-rays, MRI’s, qne CT scans (if applicable)
  6. Insurance documents (if applicable)
