Total hip replacement, or arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure in which the diseased parts of the hip joint are removed and replaced with new, artificial parts.
The hip joint is composed of two parts--the hip socket acetabulum, a cup-shaped bone in the pelvis) and the "ball" or head of the thigh bone (femur).
