Hip replacement surgery

A hip replacement surgery is a common procedure where a damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial (prosthetic) implant.

Having the operation can help to relieve pain, increase movement and give you a better quality of life once again.

How do you know if you need a hip replacement?

Hip replacements are typically carried out when someone experiences the following:

  • Osteoarthritis – when the cartilage inside the hip joint wears away and causes the bones to rub against one another. This is often an age-related form of arthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis – as an inflammatory arthritis, this leads to an autoimmune response that causes the body’s defence mechanism to incorrectly attack cartilage
  • Post-traumatic arthritis – this can happen after a hip injury or fracture, where the cartilage becomes damaged
  • Osteonecrosis –  when a dislocation or fracture affects the blood supply to the femoral head, this can cause arthritis to develop

While many hip replacement surgeries are performed on older adults with age-related conditions, children can also experience hip diseases that require them to have operations carried out on their hips.

Surgery will often be the answer when the pain and stiffness affects your quality of life, despite trying to rectify the problem with walking supports, rest or medication. You may be finding that walking or bending down is becoming too difficult, and even getting up and down from a chair is painful. It may have even gotten to the point where you are experiencing pain when attempting to rest.

Different types of hip replacement surgery

  • Total hip replacement – also known as total hip arthroplasty, this is where both the ball and socket are removed and are replaced with prosthetics
  • Partial or half hip replacement – this is where the ball and stem of the damaged bone are replaced with prosthetics but the socket is not

During both surgeries, the prosthetic stem is inserted into the remaining bone. Being porous, the bone will then fuse with the prosthetic.

How to prepare for your surgery

Your surgeon will assess you prior to the operation and carry out several tests including blood tests, urine tests, an X-ray and an electrocardiogram (ECG). They will also want to get an understanding of any medications that you are taking, as different types of drugs can affect the procedure.

Before the surgery, you may also be advised to exercise in order to help strengthen your muscle. This will aid in recovery after the surgery.

How long does a hip replacement surgery last?

You’ll typically arrive for your surgery several hours in advance. The surgery will take between 1 to 3 hours. However, this may change depending on the severity of your condition and any factors that arise on the day.

After the surgery, you will then be required to stay in the hospital for a few days. During this time, you will meet with your surgeon as well as your physical or occupational therapist who will provide you with a post-operative plan.

After one or two days in hospital, you will be able to walk with assistance, using crutches or a walker. Typically, you should be able to walk very short distances, such as to the bathroom, after three days.

Hip replacement recovery FAQs

What is the hip replacement recovery time?

It is important to be realistic and recognise that recovering from a hip replacement is a long process. It can take between 10-12 weeks to recover from the operation to the point where you are able to return to your normal activities. However, it can take up to 6 months to completely recover from the surgery.

How much walking can you do after a hip replacement?

After hip replacement surgery, your post-operative plan will provide you with all the advice you need so that you can recover in the best way possible. This will include advice and recommendations around walking, as it is an exercise that can help with your recovery.

Within your post-operative plan, it is likely to recommend walking a number of times a day while you are recovering from the surgery.

Between three to six weeks, you will be able to consider walking unaided after your hip replacement. You should also be able to drive again.

How long after a hip replacement can I tie my shoes?

It is often recommended that you don’t try to tie your shoes in the first 6 weeks after hip replacement surgery. After these 6 weeks, it is likely that your physical or occupational therapist will provide you with ways to tie your shoes that don’t involve bending down.

How long does a hip replacement last?

A modern artificial hip joint is designed to last for at least 15 years. But with more durable, newer materials and newer tools being used within the surgeries, the amount of time a hip replacement lasts for could improve in the coming years.
