Case Study of a Hip Replacement Surgery

My grandmother used to complain a lot about her arthritis, especially after her retirement. The doctor told us that such ailments have no cure, but only treatments. Here was always a joint replacement surgery that could be done at we were a bit sceptical about how much she could handle it at this age, and moreover whether it will be effective or not in the first place. The doctor told us that patient satisfaction varies and there are side effects too, but however, things looked promising.

Months after taking the suggestion, my grandmother was ready for a bipolar prosthesis. She fell down and had a suffered from a minor crack.At herage, for it to heal; she would have needed cannulated screws to fix that. Insertion and removal of cannulated screw http://www.orthopedic-implants.com/cannulated-cancellous-screw.html  needed multiple surgeries.

The doctor told us that she would not need a full hip replacement. The surgery will leave more than seventy five percent of her ligaments, muscles and bones in the hip region intact. The bipolar prosthesis would be attached to the hip bone with an acetabular cup. This is basically the hip socket.

The fact is, that with age, the softness of the bones go away and there is lack of lubrication in the joints. This causes joint pains, the one from which my grandmother was suffering. This ease the pain, the joint is replaced with prosthesis. The acetabular cup is the socket that replaced the socket in her hip bone. After the implant, she fully recovered and does not complain any more about pain either.
