This is where one --: Bone of the hip joint, ie the femur (ball) is replaced and not the socket. Done mostly in fractures of the femur (thigh bone) near the hip joint.
As the name indica -: Tes, in total hr, both the socket and ball parts of the hip joints are replaced; while in partial hr, only the ball part is replaced (and not the socket). The thr is done for the arthritis mainly while partial hr is mainly done for the fractures of the hip.
THA vs partial: Total hip replaces both the femoral and acetabular sides with specific-sized implants. A partial hip typically replaces only a part of it, or may refer to resurfacing procedures.
sides of joint: Total refers to both sides of the hip joint - are replaced often metal on one side (the ball) and a special plastic on the other side the cup. Partial is where only one side is replaced usually the ball.See 1 more doctor answer

What is the partial hip replacement procedure that replaces just the acetabellum not the femur head?
Acetabular osteotomy: There are acetabular osteotomies that reorient the acetabulum but do not actually replace the surface.
Is there a partial hip replacement procedure that only replaces the acetabellum and not the femur head?
No: Both sides of the joint are almost always worn out and require at least the femoral side replaced, if not both.See 2 more doctor answers
After partial hip replacement surgery mother developed small hard lump in her groin. Surgeon doesn't think it has bearing on surgery. What can it be?
Let me explain: The complications from hip surgery is not common, since the surgeon said not related to the surgery, I have to believe him. Many other things could be the problem for example, hernia in that area, enlarge lymph node are the most common. How long since she have the surgery? It is very hard to make other comment without seeing the patient.
THA recovery: Usually up walking on it full weight bearing by the next morning, sometimes even the night of surgery. Lots of pt and therapy: start with walker, progress to cane and stairs. 6 weeks for collagen and soft tissue to heal.
6 - 12 weeks: Most patients have resumed normal activity at about 6 weeks but can take up to a year for a full recovery.See 1 more doctor answer
Comprehensive: Depending upon the type of hip rep. Surgery, one may begin range of motion and when authorized by surgeon, weight bearing. A therapist will work with you to restore motion, strengthen all muiscle groups needed for the hip joint and ambulation and then will begin balance, ambulatin and endurance exercises. Occupational therapy may be involved. This can go on for up to 4-6 weeks and beyondSee 1 more doctor answer
Rest: More of the hip replacement is about time and healing. There are certainly hip precautions and learning how to take care of the hip, therapy to be able to get in/out if bed, and general strengthening and conditioning to return to activity. However, it is more about resting and allowing the surgery to heal than anythig else.See 1 more doctor answer
6-12 weeks: Usually 6 to 12 weeks but depending on the surgery and the individual this can vary.See 1 more doctor answer
4 to 6 weeks: All depend upon what kind of prosthesis is used and what surgical approach. The mallority of the time now you can get out of bed the followind day of the surgery and start ambulation with a walker and in 2 to 3 weeks can graduate to a 4 prone cane, pt is usually helpful and you can be independent in 2 months.
Not easy: Obviously there are potential complications from a medical point of view. The recovery for a hip replacement takes several months to decrease pain, increase motion, increase strength and gradually normalize your gait. After this procedure, one can improve for 6-12 months afterward I would suggest doing only one side at a time due to the extensive surgery and recovery.
