Dr. Hal Chaudhary, a total hip and knee replacement specialist, takes you through the process of a total hip replacement.
Hi. My name's Dr. Hal Chaudhary, hip and knee replacement specialist here at Beacon Orthopaedics, and I would like to go over a hip replacement model and explain some of the details about it. This is your basic hip replacement.
You have two main components: a thermal component and an acetabular component. People would say perhaps a ball and a socket. The final component that we commonly implant is made of ceramic. It is pink in color, just like you see in the model here. And it articulates with a polyethylene or a plastic socket. And it fits together like this.
We do the hip replacement through an anterior approach so we don't have to cut any muscle or tendon. The femoral component and the acetabular component are fixed with what we call bone ingrowth technology. So the implants themselves have a coating that the bone has affinity for, and there's no cement. After the bone is appropriately prepared we can tap these implants in and then they grow into the bone for long term stability. So, that's your basics of a hip replacement.
