  • I had a total hip replacement 13 months ago. It was to correct a birth defect, I was born without a hip socket on the left side,and the joint was sitting on top of the leg bone, causing unbelievable pain. What can I help you with about it? I'll share anything you want to know! If you don't want to here, PM me,and I'll be glad to help.

  • Hip replacement surgery is one of the most performed surgery done every year. Many people who have arthritis thinks that surgery would be their last option to manage hip pain. Some had to go through multiple surgery just to correct their primary surgery.

  • Applications of hip replacements are the most commonly performed orthopedic surgery, catering mostly the aged population. However, technology has made it possible for these surgeries to be performed even to younger patients. But the results were not as successful as when they are implanted to older people. As it turns out, younger patients’ active lifestyle causes frequent dislocations and increases the need to redo the surgery. Find more info at those hip recall law sites.
