Total hip replacement (also known as total hip arthroplasty) is an effective treatment for chronic and debilitating hip arthritis.

At University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), our hip specialists will help you determine if you should continue with non-surgical treatments or if it's time for a hip replacement.

A hip is a ball and socket joint. In a total hip replacement, a metal cup lined with an advanced plastic surface replaces the arthritic socket. A high-strength metal or ceramic ball mounted on a stem and placed in the thighbone replaces the arthritic ball. This way, the damaged surfaces are replaced while leaving the majority of the bone around the hip intact.
