What is Hip Replacement Surgery ?

In this surgery, the ball and socket joint connecting the thigh bone (femur) and hip bones (pelvis) is replaced by a metal or plastic prosthesis. When the cartilage support of the ball and socket joint wears out leading to a painful movement, people may opt for hip replacement surgery. The hip resurfacing approach in which the damaged portions are only replaced not the entire ball and socket joint is less invasive and requires less recovery period.
