Hip Replacement

Joint degeneration, also called osteoarthritis, represents a worldwide common disease with rising frequency. Besides of the knee joint, the hip is the joint most frequently affected with degeneration. Osteoarthritis is defined as a progressive wear of cartilage, which can get under control in the early stages with conservative measures, such as physiotherapy, manual therapy, anti-inflammatory drugs and reducing the stress on the hip joint. However, if the consumption of cartilage exceeded a certain level, permanent pain occurs in daily life. In this stage in most cases only the artificial replacement of the affected joint remains. About 200,000 artificial hip joints are implanted annually in Germany. Therefore, this is a routine procedure, which is one of the major therapeutic focuses of our clinic. Due to the low rate of complications, it is possible to obtain a pain-free mobility with significantly improved range of motion for the majority of patients after surgery.

Along with the increasing number of implanted artificial joints there were continuous advancements and improvements of prostheses as well as surgical techniques in recent decades. Especially regarding the replacement of the hip joint surgeons can choose from plenty of different prosthetic concepts today. Possible are different anchoring methods on the acetabulum and the femur as well as various bearing systems. Thus, we can offer each patient an individualized prosthetic system adjusted to his age and the particular circumstances. When selecting particularly the biological age, body weight and level of activity is crucial.
