Hip Replacement

A total hip replacement (THR) – also called a Hip Arthroplasty– is a surgical procedure that re-forms the hip joint. In THR, the head of the femur (the bone that extends from the hip to the knee) is removed along with the surface layer of the socket in the pelvis (the two large bones that rest on the lower limbs and support the spinal column). 633 more words
