Arthritis Today;May/Jun2012, Vol. 26 Issue 3, p54
The article offers information on the six types of hip surgery. It mentions hip arthroscopy which is used to fix soft tissue abnormalities and removal of broken cartilage. It cites osteotomy, a procedure that involves cutting of bone and pelvis rotation and screwing to correct hip misalignment. It also cites total hip placement (THR) through a combination of metal, plastic, and ceramic components implant.
