Hip replacement surgery

Hip replacement surgery

The most common reason for joint replacement surgery of the hip is osteoarthritis or rheumatism. Reoperation may be necessary if the artificial joint wears out or detaches. The surgery’s purpose is to improve mobility, reduce pain, restore working and functional ability, as well as improving the patient’s quality of life.

The purpose of hip replacement surgery is to replace a damaged hip joint with an artificial one. The surgery takes between one and two hours and is usually carried out under epidural anaesthesia.

The orthopaedist will select the model of the joint based on the patient’s individual factors, such as their general condition, bone quality, anatomical factors and the strain expected on the joint.

Coxa Hospital for Joint Replacement uses joints that have been scientifically proven to be of high quality.

Artificial hip joint models

The replacement joint’s model is always chosen based on individual factors – to suit you and your situation. We have a wide selection of models available, and we will be sure to find the right one for you.

Joint replacement surgery is always carefully planned beforehand. X-ray images taken with a measuring tool allow the orthopaedist to prepare a computer-assisted plan for your surgery and reserve the correct instruments and models.

Coxa keeps a close eye on the development of artificial joints and performs world-class monitoring of the success rates of different models. Coxa uses this information to select the models with the best track record.

After your surgery, you will have periodic check-ups that evaluate your joint’s condition using regular X-ray examinations and symptom surveys.
