Total Hip replacement surgery is one of the very common orthopaedic surgeries and a lot of patients from all around the world come to our network orthopaedic hospitals in India for availing High Quality and Affordable Hip Replacement Surgery. In a total hip joint replacement surgery the worn out hip joint is replaced with an artificial hip (called a prosthesis or hip implant) made of metal and plastic. A hip surgery is the last resort and is done when the pain is severe and the patient finds it very difficult to walk. Even though the idea of getting an artificial hip joint may be frightening to some patients, but it is one of the safest and most effective medical procedures to help patients to lead a better quality of life.
In a Cemented total hip replacement surgery, cement is used to secure the implant to the bone. Whereas, in case of a Cementless total hip replacement surgery, the bone heals directly to the implant. The results of cemented hip replacement and cementless hip replacement may be identical. Usually, cementless hip replacements recommended to those patients who have good enough bone quality to accommodate a cementless implant.
It is found that young, active or heavy patients are most likely to loosen a cemented total hip replacement and hence for these patients, there are chances that a cementless total hip replacement may be recommended by the doctors. The Patients with poor bone quality or with less active lifestyles might be the candidates for cemented total hip replacement.
