The Hip Joint

The hip is one of the body’s largest joints. It plays an important role in movement and maintaining balance. It also supports weight while we are standing, sitting, running, or walking. The Hip Joint is a ball and socket joint. It is made up of two parts. The first is the hip socket and the other is the thigh bone called the femur. A smooth material called cartilage lines the socket, allowing the ball to move smoothly inside the socket.

In a diseased hip, the cartilage wears out resulting in the bone to bone contact that can be painful.

Characteristics /Symptoms of Osteoarthritis hip

  • Pain in the groin or thigh that might radiate to buttocks or knee and aggravates on vigorous activity
  • Stiffness
  • Tenderness
  • Swelling
  • Decreased range of motion

Types of hip replacement procedures offered at Elite Ortho India?


The cemented hip implant is designed to be implanted using bone cement (a group that helps position the implant within the bone). Bone cement is injected into the prepared femoral canal. The surgeon then positions the implant within the canal and the grout helps to hold it in the desired position.


The porous hip implant is inserted into the prepared femoral canal without the use of bone cement. Initially, the femoral canal is prepared so that the implant fits tightly within it. The porous surfaces on the hip implant are designed to engage the bone within the canal and permit ingrowth into the porous surface. Eventually, this growth can provide additional fixation to hold the implant in the desired position.

Dr. Manuj Wadhwa has revolutionized hip replacement surgery through the utilization of the latest technology platforms and techniques, including the introduction of Day Care Hip Replacement surgery, along with Robotics, Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence.

What should I expect before, during, and after hip replacement surgery?

Preparing for Hip Replacement Surgery

Embarking on hip replacement surgery begins with essential preparations to ensure a smooth process and successful outcome:

  • Selecting the Right Surgeon: Research and choose a surgeon with a proven track record in hip replacements.
  • Understanding the Procedure:Educate yourself about the surgery's steps, benefits, and potential risks to make informed decisions.
  • Organizing Medical Records:Compile all relevant medical documents and any required paperwork for hospital admission, stay, and discharge.

Pre-operative steps include undergoing fitness tests and obtaining medical clearance to ensure you're in optimal health for the surgery. This might involve adjusting medications, such as stopping blood thinners. It's crucial to address any concerns with your doctor or hospital staff beforehand. Your surgeon might also advise meeting with a Physical Therapist (PT) before the operation to receive guidance on preparing your living space for post-surgery recovery and learning about mobility aids and techniques to use after the surgery.

Post-Operative Recovery

Thanks to advancements in surgical techniques and pain management, recovery from hip replacement surgery has become more efficient:

  • Immediate Post-Surgery:Innovations such as FIFO (Fast-In, Fast-Out) technology enable patients to begin walking within hours after surgery, promoting a quicker return to daily activities.
  • Rehabilitation:Physical therapy starts almost immediately, focusing on strengthening exercises and gradually increasing mobility. Most patients can engage in low-impact activities like walking, cycling, or golfing within 12 weeks, though full recovery may vary up to 6 months.
Post-Operative Physical Therapy

Under the supervision of your surgeon, a tailored rehabilitation program will commence shortly after the operation. Initial exercises often include isometric moves, which strengthen muscles without joint movement, beginning while still in bed.

Ensuring a Smooth Recovery

For an optimal recovery, following your healthcare team's advice and actively participating in your rehabilitation program are key. Dr. Manuj Wadhwa, a leading hip replacement specialist in Mohali, offers expert guidance throughout the recovery process, leveraging the latest in surgical advancements for the best outcomes.

What are the potential risks and complications associated with hip replacement surgery?

Total Hip Replacement is a very successful surgery in the hands of an expert, but still there is no 100% guarantee. Every surgical procedure has risks and benefits. Individual results will depend on personal circumstances, and recovery takes variable time.

Here is a list of potential post-surgery complications:

  • Blood clots
  • Infection
  • Fracture
  • Dislocation
  • Loosening
  • Leg length difference
  • Need for second hip replacement

At ELITE Orthopaedics, Dr. Manuj Wadhwa, renowned for his expertise in hip replacement surgery, will assess your risk for complications and tailor specific treatments to mitigate these risks.

What is the expected recovery time after hip replacement surgery?

With new innovative technologies in pain control concepts and minimally invasive surgeries done with FIFO, patients now recover way faster. They mostly walk on their feet around 3 hours after surgery, go to toilet seat next morning and outside their room in afternoon. Within 12 weeks following surgery, many patients will resume their recreational activities, such as talking long walk, cycling, or playing golf. It may take some patients up to 6 months to completely recover following a hip replacement.

With our latest patented technologies, we offer a fast-track recovery process, ensuring a swift return to your daily activities. Consult Dr. Manuj Wadhwa, the foremost and best hip replacement surgeon, for optimal results

How long do hip replacements typically last?

Hip replacements are a significant advancement in medical technology, offering enhanced mobility and pain relief to those with severe hip joint damage. However, the lifespan of these implants can vary widely, influenced by several key factors:

Implant Lifespan

Typically, hip implants last between 10 to 30 years. The variance largely depends on the patient's lifestyle and the care they afford their new joint.

Activity Level Impact

Active individuals, particularly younger ones, may find their implants wear out more quickly than those of older individuals with more sedentary lifestyles. This is due to the increased demand placed on the implant through vigorous activities.

Critical Influencing Factors
  • Physical Condition and Activity: A patient's overall health, weight, and the level of physical activity significantly impact implant longevity.
  • Weight: Heavier weight places more stress on the implant, potentially reducing its lifespan.
  • Implant Placement Accuracy: The skill with which the implant is positioned during surgery also plays a critical role in its durability.
  • Implant Type: Advances in biomaterials, such as ceramics and oxidized zirconium paired with strengthened plastic, have improved wear resistance, potentially extending the life of the implant.
Expectations for Durability

While newer biomaterials are designed to reduce wear and increase the implant's lifespan, it's important for patients to have realistic expectations. On average, patients can expect their hip replacement to last 20 to 25 years. For those over 60, it's likely the implant will last for the remainder of their lifetime.

Success rate of hip replacement surgery

The success rate for this surgery is high, with greater than 95% of patients experiencing relief from hip pain. The success rate of hip replacements 10 years after surgery is 90- 95% and at 20 years, 80-85%. Should an implant wear or loosen, revision to a new hip replacement is possible.

For access to the most cutting-edge systems and techniques in hip replacement surgeries, look no further than consulting with the best hip replacement surgeon in Mohali, Dr. Manuj Wadhwa.
