What you need to know about Hip Replacement in Porto Alegre

Before the surgery, there is pain and inflammation in your joint, your mobility is decreased and there is difficulty in walking. Your joint aches while walking, but after the surgery, you would feel relief from pain and inflammation. Your movements will be smooth and frictionless.

Hip Replacement or arthroplasty is the surgical removal of a damaged hip joint and replaced by an artificial one. The hip prosthesis is implanted in place of the original hip joint. It is made up of metallic and plastic parts. Surgery can be of two types:

  1. Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) - involves the removal of both the acetabulum and head of the femur.
  2. Partial or Hemi Hip Replacement - only the head of the femur is replaced.

It is usually performed on those with chronic hip pain, often associated with old age, but can also be performed in cases of severe accidents, bone fractures, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bone tumors, avascular necrosis, and other bone abnormalities.

What's the Recovery Time for Hip Replacement Procedures in Porto Alegre?

Again, the recovery time depends upon your natural healing capacity and will power. Stitches are removed 2 weeks after the surgery. On average, 6 to 12 weeks are needed for complete recovery. Healing time varies in accordance with the type of surgery. In the case of minimally invasive surgery, you might be able to walk on the same day with the help of your medical staff. You can continue to drive 6 weeks after the operation.

What's the Success Rate of Hip Replacement Procedures in Porto Alegre?

58% of hip replacement surgeries have been reported to last for 25 years or more. But the average is over 15 years, after which metallic or plastic hip prostheses wear out. The success rate is 90 to 95% after 10 years of surgery. It falls to 80-85% after 20 years.
