Are you asking if bone can be harvested from the hip where the prosthetic hip joint is being placed?

In brief: Yes
We often put bone graft from the socket reamings behind the acetabular implant to provide bone cells to aid in "on growth" of the bone to the implant.

In brief: What?
It's not clear what your question is asking.
When you do a hip replacement, a bone braft may be carried out to supplement inadequate bone loss. Frequently your native femoral head, which would other wise be removed and discarded, is morselized and used to fill in cysts or other voids. A hip replacement is an artificial device, so you can't get bone graft from that.
