Partial Hip Replacement is surgery to replace the femoral head of the damaged hip joint. The hip socket is kept in place.
The surgery is most often done to repair certain types of hip fractures, and is also an option when the socket of the hip joint becomes unhealthy.
Surgery usually works well. It is a safe and effective procedure with a success rate of around 90 to 95 per cent in India. However, recovery does take patience and time. Your hip will likely regain most, if not all, of its function.
Controlling your weight and avoiding hard physical work that stresses the joint will help your new hip joint last longer.
The risks following partial hip replacement are low. Serious complications, such as hip-joint infection, occur in only 1.0% of patients, and other complications occur even less frequently.
The cost of partial hip replacement surgery in India ranges from USD 995 to USD 2,323.
