Hip Replacement Overview

Hip Replacement | Procedure, Symptoms, Types of Implants and Risks

All total hip replacements have the same goal: remove the portions of damaged hip joint and replace them with an implant. The implant used is made up of several different components. The individual components are available in many different sizes and materials so that your surgeon can decide which options will be the best fit for your individual needs. These include:

  • Stem: Inserted into the thigh bone (femur) and anchors the implant in place
  • Ball: attaches to the stem and recreates the ball (femoral head)
  • Liner: recreates the smooth cartilage and allows the new ball (femoral head) to glide and rotate
  • Cup: recreates the hip socket (acetabulum)
