It is the largest ball-and-socket joint. The socket is formed by the acetabulum of the pelvis bone. The ball is the femoral head, which is the upper end of the thigh bone.
A smooth tissue called articular cartilage, lines the surfaces of the joint hence enabling them to move smoothly & easily. Synovial membrane surrounds the hip joint, which secretes synovial fluid that lubricates the joint. Ligaments & capsule connects the ball to the socket and provide stability to the joint.
The damaged bone and cartilage is removed and replaced with prosthetic components.
Dr.Naveen Reddy’s good attitude and caring behaviour itself will give you half relief. My family is very thankful to Dr.Naveen Reddy. The hospital staff had provided me the best medical services. The extreme care is taken by the doctor. In my view Dr.Naveen Reddy Ortho is the best place for hip replacement surgery in Hyderabad. — Megha
