Bone/ Joint Health Hip Replacement

In this episode we will discuss Hip replacement (total hip arthroplasty) is surgery to replace a worn out or damaged hip joint. The surgeon replaces the old joint with an artificial joint(prosthesis). This surgery may be a choice after a hip fracture or for severe pain because of arthritis.
