A total hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which the diseased cartilage and bone of the hip joint is surgically replaced with artificial materials. Total hip joint replacement involves surgical removal of the diseased ball and socket and replacing them with a metal ball and stem inserted into the femur bone and an artificial plastic cup socket.
Patients with damaged hip joint either due to Osteoarthritis, Trauma, Congenital abnormality of the hip, Asceptic Necrosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis etc should consider undegoing THR.The progressively intense chronic pain together with impairment of daily function including walking, climbing stairs, and even arising from a sitting position eventually become reasons to consider a total hip replacement.
After the surgery which generally lasts for two to four hours, both lower limbs will be observed for adequate sensation and circulation. Besides starting pain killers and antibiotics, compression stockings are applied to prevent blood clotting in the lower limbs. Physical Therapy will begin in 48 hrs.
The therapist will help the patient in walking and reinstating the movement of the knee. The knee will be in an immoboliser which will be removed after the inspection by the surgeon. Patients will start walking using a walker and crutches. Eventually, patients will learn to walk up and down stairs and grades. Patients are given home exercise programs to strengthen the muscles around the buttock and thigh.

It is important for patients to continue in an outpatient physical-therapy program along with home exercises for optimal outcome of the replacement surgery. Excercising and maintaining mobility will help prevent the scarring of the replaced joint and improve muscle strength around the joint.
A good hospital needs to have qualified doctors with good experience. Most of the hospitals in the vicinity offer services of doctors who either do not have proper qualifications or do not possess requisite experience. We do not claim to be a tertiary care hospital providing services across all the streams of medicine and surgery but whatever service you get at Yashlok Hospital are first class in terms of quality.
We are probably the only hospital which has an inhouse Ultrasound and Colour Doppler facility. The hospital has state of art Digital X-Ray, ECG, Pathology Lab, Dental Centre, Physiotherapy Centre and Inhouse Pharmacy. The operating room at the hospital has the deployment of cutting edge technology which gives us the confidence of doing the most complex of the surgeries with relative ease.
Healthcare is a very different stream from any other service industry. People come to us only when they are in a problem which they are not able to understand. All our team members are thoroughly trained to provide the medical care with highest ethical standards and with compassion and empathy. The entire care programme is designed keeping the centricity of the patient in mind.
