During hip replacement surgery, a damaged part of the hip is removed and a man-made implant is placed in place. Newly-made artificial hips are thus expected to function in the same way as natural hips that have been replaced.
In a traditional hip replacement, a long incision is made on hip cutting through the muscle to expose the hip joint. Metal cups are then placed on the pelvis and metal rods attached to the thigh or thigh bones.
A ball is placed above this rod and anti-friction material is used to coat all open parts. The hips are then replaced and finally, the incision is closed. Medica stem cells offer minimally invasive, non-surgical, safe hip replacement alternatives and hip pain treatment to get your life back on track without surgery.

Preparations for hip replacement surgery begin several weeks before the surgery is performed. The patient uses this time to clarify doubts, arrange finances and prepare a home to live during rehabilitation.
Hip replacement surgery is major surgery. Patients, therefore, have to be prepared that recovery will not be immediate and dramatic. Instead, time, coupled with medication and exercise will heal and normal active life can be recovered gradually.
The time needed to fully recover from surgery differs from person to person. But a positive attitude can do wonders and speed up the recovery process significantly.
