In brief: Ball is out of socke

The hip is a ball and socket joint.
The ball is the femur (thigh bone) head and it sits in the acetabular socket of the pelvis. If the ball comes out of the socket all the way, then its called a dislocation. This can occur with natural native hips following trauma or artificial hip replacements after surgery.
