Hip replacement, also known as hip arthroplasty, is a surgery in which your hip joint is replaced by an endoprosthesis. Hip replacement is a solution to a problem with a joint that is damaged due to a disease or injury, such as osteoarthritis, which can cause severe pain and loss of mobility. When replacing the hip joint, complete or only partial replacement of the damaged joint can be made. Many patients are frightened by the hip replacement, as involves not only surgery, but also using the implant. However, endoprosthetic surgery has become a standard practice in orthopedic surgery nowadays. Hip arthroplasty will help you get rid of pain and return to a fulfilling life. Over the past years, the results of endoprosthetic surgery have been improved significantly due to the usage of new materials and techniques. Hip arthroplasty is becoming more and more widespread as the world's population ages. At the moment, hip replacement surgery is one of the most common surgeries performed in the world.
