Partial Hip Replacement

Partial hip replacement, also called hip hemiarthroplasty, is a surgical procedure where only the femoral head (the ball) of the damaged hip joint is replaced. The acetabulum (the socket) is not replaced as in total hip replacement surgery. Broken and fractured hips (traumatic hip injuries) are the main reason for partial hip replacement. It is not typically a treatment for degenerative arthritis in the hip joint.
