    If anyone is interested a man called John Charnley pioneered the hip replacement operation, look him up on Wikipedia. We are very lucky we live in a time when this operation is possible and can change a persons quality of life if they have hip problems. I had a bad car accident four years ago and my hip was broken, was taken to hospital and it was pinned. Of course I did not have to pay as I am in the UK so it was done on the NHS. I know the NHS gets a lot of bad press but can only speak as I found, I had no problems at all and am very grateful I was put back together and can lead a normal life.

    I had my hip replaced in "89" with a cement-less model. It failed after 6 years and was replaced again in "93". the doctor told me to expect it to be replaced within 10 years. Its still hanging in there after 21!

    what device was used in the replacement, how long will it last, and what kind of sutures were used in the closing of the wound(s)? were any dissolving sutures used? do they need to put in a drain, or is it from case-to-case procedure? very informative, descriptive, and hope that patient is doing well! the procedures used are great! thanks for the video! be well!

    I'm currently having problem with the hip and may need a hip replacement. I see that the skin was remove so the stitch will not show after the operation. How long will it take after the total hip replacement for recovery and ready for work in the construction industry?

    I had to watch this with no sound for the shear fact that i'm in a library. Im curious if he made reference to what he will do with the artery that runs through the head of the femur...

      I believe that blood vessel has an anastamosis(more passages to.go.throug) so that blood will still reach its destination. But I have no medical.experience just took an.anatomy course but I read your.comment and I thought it.was a great question and I didnt know. This surgery stuff is.the real.deal.

    this was so amazing to watch! It really took the fear out of it. Just going by the said medical jargon, I'm assuming this wasn't made for us lay-folk, but thank you just the same for creating this!

    Amazing ! And I went through this surgery 3 times since 2004. Once in 2004, once in 2010 and last in 2012. Are any more coming ? I hope not. The pain post op is not 1/2 as bad as it looks. here. And not comparable with pre op. Thanks to our great and talented surgeons
