This is one of the most commonly performed joint replacement surgery with the best results, that’s why it has been described as ‘The Operation of the Century’. In this surgery the part of the pelvic bone(Acetabulum) and the hip bone(Head, neck and stem of Femur) that connects with it, both are replaced with the artificial components.
The Acetabulum is like a cup which is made up of high density polyethylene component, the hip bone components are made up of metal alloys (Chromium-Cobalt Alloy).
They can be fixed both with or without cement.
