Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Hip replacement surgery. Image 1 of 9. Surgeon holding the head of a femur (thigh bone) that has been removed during hip replacement surgery. The skin and soft tissues around the hip are being held back by metal retractors to give the surgeons easy access to the joint. Joints may need to be replaced after injury, disease or deformity. This hip is being replaced because of congenital hip dysplasia, a condition where the hip joint does not fit together properly, causing it to dislocate frequently and to become worn. For a sequence showing the operation see M511/418- M551/426.
