Health Tip: Understanding Hip Replacement Surgery

(HealthDay News) -- During hip replacement surgery, a surgeon will remove damaged or diseased parts of the joint and replace them with man-made parts.

The replaced hip should last about 15 to 20 years, the US. National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases says.

If you're considering the procedure, the agency offers these factors to consider:

  • The goals of the surgery are to relieve pain, help the hip work better and improve movement.
  • Risks from the surgery are much lower than they used to be.
  • People tend to spend one-to-four days in the hospital after the surgery.
  • It may take six months to feel completely well.
  • An exercise program can reduce joint pain and stiffness and aid in recovery.
