Hip joint replacement is surgery to replace all or part of the hip joint with a man-made joint. The artificial joint is called a prosthesis.

Your hip joint is made up of two major parts. One or both parts may be replaced during surgery:
The hip socket (a part of the pelvic bone called the acetabulum)
The upper end of the thighbone (called the femoral head)

The new hip that replaces the old one is made up of these parts:
A socket, which is usually made of strong metal.
A liner, which fits inside the socket. It is usually plastic, but some surgeons are now trying other materials, like ceramic and metal. The liner allows the hip to move smoothly.
A metal or ceramic ball that will replace the round head (top) of your thigh bone.
A metal stem that is attached to the thigh bone to make the joint more stable.
