HIP REPLACEMENTS - Drug Watch
Hip replacements — the surgical repair of an aged or injured natural hip joint by adding an artificial joint, or implant — date back three centuries. Reasons for these implants are the same now as then: a fracture or similar injury to the hip, arthritis or a wearing down of the joint over time. The goal is to reduce pain and increase mobility.
