The hip joint is the largest weight-bearing
joint in the human body. It is also referred to
as a ball and socket joint and is surrounded
by muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The
thigh bone or femur and the pelvis join to
form the hip joint.
Hip replacement has become necessary
for your arthritic hip: this is one of the
most effective operations known and
should give you many years of
freedom from pain.
This means that part or all of your previous hip replacement needs to be revised. This operation varies from very minor adjustments to massive operations replacing significant amounts of bone and hence is difficult to describe in full.
The knee is a complex joint which consists of bone, cartilage, ligaments and tendons that make joint movements easy and at the same time more susceptible to various kinds of injuries.
A Total Knee Replacement (TKR) or
Total Knee Arthroplasty is a surgery
that replaces an arthritic knee joint with
artificial metal or plastic replacement
parts called the ‘prostheses’.
Revision Knee Replacement means that part or all of your previous knee replacement needs to be revised. This operation varies from very minor adjustments to massive operations replacing significant amounts of bone.
Unicondylar Knee Replacement simply means that only a part of the knee joint is replaced through a smaller incision than would normally be used for a total knee replacement.
