Hip Replacement

The Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey provides comprehensive treatment plans by the most highly skilled Orthopedic Hip Specialists.

Hip Replacement

The hip joint makes it possible for you to run, walk, sit, and perform many other lower body movements with ease. The hip is where the thigh bone (femoral head) meets the pelvis (acetabulum). Both bones are covered in cartilage to provide cushion and allow easy movement. A wide range of hip conditions can cause discomfort in this area. Our board-certified orthopaedic surgeons utilize some of the most effective conservative treatments available; however, sometimes a surgical procedure may be needed to address the issue. Our minimally invasive hip replacement techniques are designed to reduce or eliminate pain and to restore function as safely and as quickly as possible.

Total Hip Replacement

Referred to as hip arthroplasty, a total hip replacement is a procedure in which the ball of the femur and the socket of the pelvis are replaced with artificial parts or prostheses. These parts are typically made of titanium, other metals, polyethylene plastic, and/or ceramic.

Each bone must be prepared to ensure proper fit of prostheses. To do so, one of our experienced orthopaedic surgeons will remove the ball portion from the femur and enlarge the natural canal located in the bone. This is where the stem will be inserted and secured. Similarly, the existing pelvic socket will be prepared to make room for the artificial one. When each part has been replaced, the prosthetic stem and ball will be inserted into the prosthetic socket. They are stabilized by the surrounding tissues in an effort to restore improved function and eliminate pain.
