A total hip replacement is a surgery to replace a diseased or injured hip joint. An artificial ball-and-socket joint is inserted to make a new hip. It can be done by full open surgery or a minimally invasive technique.

The minimally invasive technique only requires one or two tiny incisions and special instruments. People eligible for this surgery are typically:

  • Younger than 50
  • Of normal weight
  • Healthier than those who have the traditional total hip replacement surgery
