“Pain free movement is life.”

In the endeavor of providing pain free movement to all our hip patients, we have added a 4th dimension to hip replacement surgery.

Unlike knee replacement, during hip replacement surgery we need to work in depth, of ball & socket joint.

Correct placement of artificial socket requires 360 degree visions.

The 360 degree vision of the socket is usually difficult while operating from one side.

We have a team of highly qualified joint replacement surgeons during surgery standing on either side of patient so, 360 degree visualization of socket becomes possible.

This 4th dimension of high qualified team of 2 surgeons work for the 100% outcome of surgery.

The international data suggests that now more & more arthritis of hip is seen in a very younger age group of patients. In our practice about 50% of patients are below 50 years of age. & to our surprise patients below age of 35 years constitute 25% of the total work load.

Average life of an artificial hip implant is about 20 years. Also average activity level and demand from artificial hip is very high in patients of younger age group. So, the life of artificial implant is relatively less in younger patients.

So, it becomes compulsory to go for implant selection in such a way that

  • 1. It sustains the demand of young individual for 20 and more years.
  • 2. If reoperation is required then it should be relatively easily.
  • 3. Patients natural bone has to be maximally preserved.

This is how we can plan 40 to 50 years of life yet to be lived happily by a young hip sufferer.

Viroc has a team of 5 qualified counsellors and a detailed counselling module which provides the following guidance.

  • 1. Disease process and remedies at each stage of hip disease
  • 2. Self care of hip pain
  • 3. Do’s & Don’ts of personal, social and professional life.
  • 4. Basket of implant selection taking into consideration age, disease, bone quality and occupation of patient.
  • 5. Life with artificial hip.

Don’t stop here! We give life time support by our Holistic approach so then artificial painless hip becomes a happy hip replacement and further to a productive hip replacement for the family and society.


Hip replacements are among the most common orthopedic procedures. When a hip replacement is performed, the arthritic, damaged hip joint is removed. The ball-and-socket hip joint is then replaced with an artificial implant. The materials used in the implant depend on several factors, including the age of the patient, the activity level of the patient, and the surgeon’s preference.

Below are brief descriptions of some of the most commonly used hip replacement implants. Not all implants are options for all patients. These are general statements about the different implants; if you have specific questions about a particular implant you must discuss this with your doctor!




Cemented had traditionally been used but in the 1980’s a uncemented design was developed. The cementless design is a porous implant. The intent is, through biologic fixation, that bone grows into and through the pores in the implant, thereby securing it.

The cementless joint replacements are expected to reduce the chance of infection and loosening of the prosthesis, which are the two major complications of hip replacement surgery. However, indicates that both the cemented and cement less joints do very well.

Patients having hip replacement surgery experience significant pain relief and improved range of motion

Cemented prosthesis: –

in this process the prosthesis is fixed to the bone with the help of special bone cement. In that variety only available in head having 2 types metal & ceramic head.

Uncemented prosthesis

: –

The design of uncemented prosthesis is a porous implant. The intent is,

through biologic fixation, that bone grows into and through the pores in the implant./p>

Advantage in uncemented fixation is that bone loss will not occur despite loosening, in contrast to the dramatic osteolysis seen in loose cemented implants. A much lower rate of thromboembolism has been shown in uncemented THR.

Type of bearing surfaces in total hip replacement prosthesis:

1). Metal on poly implant:

The metal and plastic implants are the most commonly used hip replacement implants. Both the ball and the socket of the hip joint are replaced with a metal prosthesis, and a plastic spacer is placed in between.

The metals used include titanium, stainless steel, and cobalt chrome. The plastic is called polyethylene. The implant is secured to the bone by one of two methods; it is either press-fit or cemented into place. In the press-fit method, the implant is fit snuggly into the bone, and new bone forms around the implant to secure it in position. When an implant is cemented, special bone cement is used to secure the prosthesis in position.

2). Metal on metal implant:

Metal-on-metal implants use similar materials, but there is no plastic piece inserted between. They are now being withdrawn from the market because of high rate f metallosise related complication.

3). Ceramic on poly implant

The ceramic and poly implant in that the ball of the hip joint are replaced with a ceramic prosthesis, and a plastic spacer is placed in between.

4). Ceramic on ceramic implant:

Ceramic-on-ceramic implants are designed to be the most resistant to wear of all available hip replacement implants. They wear even less than the metal-on-metal implants. Ceramics are more scratch resistant and smoother than any of these other implant materials.

Pain is a signal that the body has been damaged or something is wrong.

Pain occurs when nerve fibers (pain fibers) get stimulated; the spinal cord is the main route for all pain massages to the brain, where pain is then registered.

Will I Be Pain-Free After My Surgery?

Although patients are sore after surgery, most hip replacement patients report being completely pain-free after 3-4 weeks. Additionally, 95% of hip replacement patients reported having less pain one year after their surgery than before it, according to Total Knee Replacements.

Why Would Someone Need Total Hip Replacement?

It is suggested when the cartilage (a sponge like structure between two bones of joint) between the
ball and socket of hip joint wears out, resulting in impairment to the patient. Also it becomes
necessary when all nonsurgical treatments are failed to relieve hip pain. Other common reasons of
Hip replacement are arthritis, severe trauma to bones.

How Long Will I Have to Take Off Work?

It is recommended that patients take 2-6 weeks off of work depending on their occupation. Patients who have a desk job can typically go back to work sooner than patients who have manual labor jobs or have to be on their feet often.

How Long Will Full Recovery Take?

Patients should be able to move around the house after 4-6 weeks without experiencing pain or using walking aids. After that point, the amount of time that is necessary for a full recovery varies between patients. Some patients recover extremely quickly—within a month or two—while others require a full six months before returning to their pre-surgery levels of activity.

What Sort of Post-Operative Care Will I Require?

Initially, you will need the help of a close friend or loved one for everyday tasks such as getting dressed and showering. The length of time you will need assistance depends on the patient, but it is typically anywhere from several days to a few weeks.

Will I Need Physical Therapy?

Yes. Physical therapy is an essential part of your total hip replacement recovery process. Physical therapy begins the following day of your surgery and will take place over the course of several weeks. At first, you will do some simple exercises like contracting and relaxing your muscles in order to strengthen your hip. You will also learn new techniques for movements such as sitting, standing, and bending, in order to prevent any possible damage to your hip replacement. Typically patients are in physical therapy for 6-8 weeks and have sessions twice/week.
