Hip replacements are used mainly when the existing hip joint has worn away so badly that it has become either extremely painful, or immobile, or both. This condition causes the victim extreme problems with most everyday functions of life. A hip replacement can give them back their mobility and can render them pain free. This massively improves the patients quality of life and is extremely beneficial.
I think hip replacements can add great mobility to people who have had problems with their natural hips, I think as long as your body responds well to them and you wish to have them I think hip replacements can be very beneficial to get, being able to move around better is a good thing.
There are a lot of people and cases where hip replacements have been very beneficial. I even know a few family members who have gotten them. Where before, they use to have problems in mobility, after getting on, a lot of them were able to live normal lives without the problems they faced before hip replacement.
Hip replacements are beneficial. Hip replacements can reduce pain and discomfort brought on by osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthrits, avascular necrosis, traumatic arthritis,protrusio acetabuli, certain hip fractures, benign and malignant bone tumors, arthritis associated with Paget's disease, ankylosing spondylitis and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Hip replacement generally are done to reduce pain and improve hip function.
I feel that hip replacements are beneficial to those who truly need them. Many senior citizens who have fallen or have worked their entire life on their feet require hip surgeries and ultimately hip replacements. While a hip replacement can never fully replicate a healthy hip bone, it offers the patients relief from the pain they have endured.
