If you have been considering hip replacement surgery, then it is beneficial to know all the associated techniques and risks related to this complicate procedure. The hip joint is usually replaced due to a diagnosis of osteoarthritis, a degeneration of the joint or avascular necrosis (insufficient blood supply to the ”ball” of the hip). Your surgeon will decide which type of hip replacement you require depending on your diagnosis. Your age, activity level, weight, as well as the strength and state of the hip to be replaced are all deciding factors.
