Total Hip Replacement: The Parts Explained

by Cory Calendine, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon, Hip and Knee Specialist, Updated August 31, 2021

When it comes to improving quality of life, hip replacement is one of the most successful surgeries in medicine. Orthopaedic surgeons perform more than 300,000 hip replacements in the US every year. Hip implants consist of (4) basic plastic and metal components that replace the bone-on-bone surface damage caused by joint arthritis. In the video below, Dr. Calendine discusses the actual implant components involved in total knee replacement surgery.

Is Hip Replacement Right for Me?

If you’re one of the millions of Americans suffering from pain caused by arthritis or an injury to the hip, and you haven’t experienced adequate relief with conservative treatment options, hip replacement surgery might be right for you. Hip replacement surgery can be an effective option for patients with:

  • Severe hip pain or stiffness resulting from noninflammatory degenerative joint disease (including osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis, or avascular necrosis), and inflammatory rheumatoid or post-traumatic joint arthritis, and
  • Joint pain patients who haven’t experienced adequate relief with conservative treatment options, like bracing, medication or joint fluid supplements
