Hip replacement surgery in India has seen a steep rise in the recent years with a larger overseas population belonging to the age group of 45 – 60 years opting for joint replacement surgery overseas.
There are several advantages that hip replacement surgery brings to a person’s life. Some of the primary advantages are elimination of pain, extension of range of physical motions and improvement of quality of life and these activities help in the gradual return to normal everyday activities.
