It was first performed in the 1960s and is said to be one of the most successful surgical procedures in the last few decades. The normal hip joint is a ball and socket synovial joint. The socket is a ‘cup-shaped’’ element of the pelvis called the acetabulum. The ball is the head of the thighbone. Total hip joint replacement, the head of the femur is replaced with an artificial head on a shaft and the joint surface of the acetabulum is lined with a bowl-shaped synthetic joint surface.
