Osteoarthritis usually starts in late fourth decade but inflammatory arthritis appears earlier. Wearing out of the smooth lining of articular cartilage and exposure of bone underneath is arthritis. With progressive damage there is increased pain, stiffness, loss of range of motion, swelling and instability. Arthritis can develop because of old age, previous injury, birth defects, fracture, diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, etc.

Modern joint replacement surgery and the prostheses used in these surgeries are a mature technology, with many advancements over the past several decades. However, despite the wide success and excellent outcomes, nearly all artificial joints can be expected to wear out after enough time and wear. Joint replacement surgery is analogous to repairing the moving parts of a car, then sealing the engine compartment and achieving decades of 16+ hours of daily use without lifting the hood again!
Hip replacement, also called total hip arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace a worn out or damaged hip with a prosthesis (an artificial joint). This surgery may be considered following a hip fracture (breaking of the bone) or for someone who has severe pain due to arthritis. AVN arthritis affects young patients in India and may require THR at young age. Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease that affects mostly middle-aged and older adults, may cause the breakdown of joint cartilage and adjacent bone in the hips.
