Ceramic Hip Replacement

     X-Ray Before Hip Replacement                                X-Ray after Ceramic Hip Replacement
38 years old male from Gwalior had pain right hip for last 3 months. The pain was mild to moderate and was increased specially while driving, climbing stairs and while sitting on chair for long time. His X-Ray showed irregularity in right femoral head. MRI confirmed the diagnosis AVN (Avascular Necrosis of Hip). The options given to him at other centres were – Drilling the hip bone. Bone grafting & Stem cell therapy.
When he approached Dr. Ashwani Maichand, it was clearly explained to him that the success rate of the above mentioned procedures is less than 10 %. So there was no point in going for a surgery / procedure which has more than 90% failure rate.
Non- cemented ceramic hip replacement was done by MIS technique. Length of incision was 8 cm and no blood transfusion was required. Patient started walking with walker on day 1 , with stick on day 4 and when the patient came for a follow up after 2 weeks he was able to brisk walking and could climb stairs without support.
The conventional hip replacement contains metal bearing which lasts around 15 to 20 years. After that patient has to undergo revision surgery. This being a young patient, we used ceramic bearing so that the revision surgery is not required for next 30 to 35 years.
