High Quality and Affordable Cemented Total Hip Replacement Surgery at World-class Orthopedic Hospitals in India

The most important requirement of a hip replacement surgery is that the artificial implant that is used in the surgery is securely anchored within the skeleton to ensure proper functioning of the hip. If the prosthesis is not fixed properly it may lead to severe pain and stiffness.

A cemented total hip replacement is one such solution to the above mentioned requirement. In this process special bone cement is used for fixing the prosthesis to the skeleton. Though the basic procedure for the cemented and cement-less hip replacement is the same the difference lies in the form, construction and the rehabilitation post the surgery. The major benefits of this surgery are as follows :

  • This surgery is able to abide by small variations that may occur in this otherwise very precise operation method.

  • If the skeleton bed prepared for the prosthesis is slightly dissimilar from the shape of the prosthesis than also the cement filler levels out all the incongruities.

  • The recuperation is speedy in this surgery because the fixation potency of this surgery is the strongest.

  • Also the cement layer is like an intermediate bumper between the very stiff metal of the total hip prosthesis and the weak skeleton.

Procedure

The first step of the surgery is that the skeletal surface is made to dry and all the blood is removed, this helps in good fixation. Then a bed is prepared in the skeleton where the prosthesis is to be fixed and then in this bed the surgeon puts a lump of the bone cement dough. Afterwards the implant in placed over the cement dough, and this implant is shaped like a hemisphere and has slots over its surface which gets fixed in the skeleton bed prepared by the surgeon.

In the next step the cup and the shaft of the implant are pressed into the doughy cement so as to expand the cement into the spongy bone marrow. This cement dries and hardens in about ten minutes and it keeps the implant stable at its place. The bone cement that is used is a self curing polymer compound which completely fills the space between the prosthesis and the skeleton. This bone cement is only a filling material and not a glue of any sort. The bone cement is so made that it is opaque for X-rays and it appears as a white layer in the x-ray film. The main benefit of this quality is that any sort of damage to the cement around the prosthesis will be easily visible in the x-ray.

Lot of safety measures should be taken to prevent any fall as it may cause cracking of the cement and displacement of the prosthesis. Post the surgery physiotherapy is required for proper mobility.

Risks and Complications

The major risks involved with this surgery are as follows:

  • Circulatory disorder resulting form the pressing of the cement dough into the raw bone cavity.

  • Cracking of the cement, but this occurs only after a long time due to ageing.

  • As time passes the bond between the prosthesis and the skeleton may be lost resulting in dislocation of the implant.
