Hip replacement Surgery Types.

Hip replacement surgery normally consists of three types. These are:

I. Total Hip Replacement. - In this surgical procedure, the complete replacement of the socket, ball, hip joint, as well as femoral stem takes place.

II. Partial Hip Replacement. - This type surgery only requires the replacement of the femoral head or ball.

III. Hip Resurfacing Procedure. - In this type of surgery, the replacement of the cup is done while the ball or femoral head is reshaped and then covered using a metal cap.
