Hip replacement surgery
in Dubai – What is it?

Hip Replacement Surgery Dubai - Dr Hesham Al Khateeb

Hip replacement, commonly known as hip arthroplasty, is a surgical surgery that treats hip pain. The hip joint comprises a ball (on top of the femur, also called thigh bone) and a socket (in the pelvis, also called the hip bone).  

Hip replacement surgery in Dubai works by replacing one or both components. The procedure aims to allow you to continue normal activities and exercise with minimal pain.  

During a procedure for hip replacement in Dubai, Dr Hesham removes the damaged hip joint components and replaces them with customized metal, ceramic, or extremely hard plastic parts. This prosthetic joint (prosthesis) relieves pain and improves function.  

Hip replacement surgery in Dubai may be viable if hip pain interferes with everyday activities and non-surgical treatments have failed or are no longer effective. Arthritis is the most common reason for hip replacement in Dubai.

Reasons for getting a hip replacement in Dubai

The following conditions can harm the hip joint, necessitating hip replacement surgery in Dubai: 

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis, also known as wear-and-tear arthritis, causes deterioration of the slippery cartilage that protects the ends of bones and allows joints to function smoothly. 

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis may be caused due to an overactive immune system, which causes inflammation that can destroy cartilage and, in certain cases, underlying bone, resulting in damaged and deformed joints. 

Osteonecrosis

Osteonecrosis may happen if there is insufficient blood supply to the ball region of the hip joint, which can occur due to a fracture or dislocation; the bone may collapse and deform.
