What is hip replacement surgery?

The hip joint is a joint between the pelvis and femur(thigh bone) and it plays a significant role for walking, sitting, and movements in the lower body. If daily activities become difficult to perform due to damage accompanied by pain in the hip joint which may have derived from factors including aging, trauma, and joint disorders, hip replacement surgery removes the damaged joint to replace it with an artificial joint.
