Caption: Hip replacement. Artwork showing a prosthetic head being placed on a metal shaft in a femur (thigh bone) during hip replacement surgery. The head of the femur had previously been removed. The hip joint is separated and a prosthetic socket (blue) has been placed in the pelvis. The majority of hip replacements are a result of osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease that results in the loss of cartilage between the joint and the growth of bone in place of the cartilage. This causes pain, stiffness and loss of mobility.
