Total Hip Replacement, also known as hip arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to replace a damaged or deteriorating hip joint with an artificial implant. This intervention aims to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and enhance the overall quality of life for individuals experiencing hip joint issues.

Causes of Hip Joint Degeneration:

The need for Total Hip Replacement often arises due to various conditions leading to hip joint degeneration. Osteoarthritis (Hip Joint), rheumatoid arthritis, hip fractures, avascular necrosis, and other degenerative diseases can result in the deterioration of the hip joint, causing pain, stiffness, and reduced functionality.


Accurate diagnosis is crucial for determining the appropriateness of Total Hip Replacement. Physicians employ a combination of clinical evaluation, imaging studies (X-rays, CT scans, and MRI), and sometimes blood tests to assess the severity of hip joint damage, identify the underlying cause, and determine the best course of action.

Treatment Options:

Before considering Total Hip Replacement, conservative treatments are often explored. These may include medications, physical therapy, lifestyle modifications, and assistive devices. However, when these measures prove insufficient in providing relief and improving functionality, Total Hip Replacement becomes a viable option.

Surgical Procedure:

Total Hip Replacement surgery involves removing damaged portions of the hip joint and replacing them with artificial components made of metal, plastic, or ceramic. The surgery can be performed through various approaches, such as anterior, posterior, or lateral, each with its own set of advantages and considerations. Surgeons carefully select the most suitable approach based on the patient’s condition and medical history.

Physiotherapy Treatment:

Dr Singh Physio Care (DKPS) employs a specialized team of physiotherapists who work closely with patients to enhance strength, flexibility, and joint mobility.
