S/P Total Hip Replacement

In a total hip replacement (also called total hip arthroplasty), the damaged bone and cartilage is removed and replaced with prosthetic components. The damaged femoral head is removed and replayed with a metal stem that is placed into a hollow center of the femur. A metal or ceramic ball is placed on the upper part of the stem. The damaged cartilage surface of the socket is removed and replaced with a metal socket.
