Partial Hip Replacement

Partial Hip Replacement also called hip hemiarthroplasty, is a surgical procedure where only the femoral head (the ball) of the damaged hip joint is replaced.

The acetabulum (the socket) is not replaced. By contrast, in total hip replacement, the acetabulum is replaced with an implant.

Broken and fractured hips (traumatic hip injury) are the most common indication for partial hip replacement.

Partial Hip Replacement is not a treatment for degenerative arthritis in the hip joint, as total hip replacement is a better option.
