A hip replacement is a surgery where the doctor will remove a worn or damaged part of the hip joint, replacing it with an artificial joint. Artificial parts consist of plastic, metal, or ceramic.
The goal of the surgery is to reduce pain when other treatment options have failed. The most common reason patients end up needing a hip replacement is damage to the joints from arthritis.
Recent advancements in technology have allowed for robotic hip replacement surgery. The technology enables the surgeon to deliver precise and consistent techniques during the procedure.
