In brief: I will

T h r is a surgery done to eliminate the pain from the hip sequence to arthritis; the hip joint is ball and socket joint.
Usually the socket cover by polyethylene and the thigh bone (femur replaced) by metal prosthesis, usually the result is very good and the surgery is easy to do.

In brief: Good things

Total hip replacement thr when the surgeon go and take the bone of the hip(balland socket) out and replace them with artificial jointhave no nerve ending so the joint will not hear when you walk on it, it is like any thing artificial it flow the law of wear and tear, you take of it it last for long time , if you use and put a lot of demand on it it will wear off with time.
