Specialty surgeon complete packaged procedure for hip replacement surgery.
Hip replacement surgery also called total hip arthroplasty, involves removing a diseased hip joint and replacing it with an artificial joint, called a prosthesis.
A surgical procedure in which the hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant. Hip prostheses consist of a ball component, made of metal or ceramic, and a socket, which has an insert or liner made of plastic, ceramic, or metal. The prosthesis replaces the hip joint, replacing both the acetabulum and the femoral head. The prosthesis is made to resist corrosion, degradation, and wear. Hip replacement is typically used for people with hip joint damage from arthritis or an injury. Followed by rehabilitation, a hip replacement can relieve pain and restore the range of motion and function of your hip joint.
A total hip replacement side surgery treatment cost includes the facility fee, physician’s fee, related medical procedures, and drugs required to administer the plan of care. Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists, and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
