Partial Hip Replacement

During a partial hip replacement, your surgeon removes the diseased head of the femur (thigh bone) and replaces it with an artificial ball joint. Your surgeon also hollows out the center of the femur to allow room for the stem of the artificial joint. Because your natural socket is not replaced, this is considered a partial hip replacement.

Request a referral to a hip specialist.
