HOW IS A TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT (THA) PERFORMED IN IRAN?
Hip joint replacement is the most cost-effective surgery in that a surgeon takes out a damaged hip joint and displaces it with an artificial joint which is usually made of metal or plastic components. Depending on the patient’s condition, one type of anesthesia is chosen by the specialist. Usually, they choose general anesthesia.
The specialist cuts the hip and moves the muscles next to the hip joint. The hip joint will be taken out and an artificial joint will be replaced. After that, the specialist will close the incision or cut. This operation usually takes 2-3 hours.
There are two kinds of approaches used in the operation: Posterior and anterior.
posterior hip replacement: with a low risk of nerve damage, this approach is more common and begins with a cut behind the hip. The specialist reaches the joint by cutting the muscles at the back of the hip joint. In this surgery, the patient should lie on their side.
Anterior hip replacement: this is a new approach and that is why few surgeons use it. The operation is anterior when the cut is made in the front of the hip and the surgeon can’t view or access the hip joint. Thus, this approach needs more proficiency.
