Hip replacement. Artwork showing the second stage of hip replacement surgery. The hip joint has been separated and the socket is being hollowed out to allow the placement of a prosthetic socket. The majority of hip replacements are a result of osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease that results in the loss of cartilage between the joint and the growth of bone in place of the cartilage. This causes pain, stiffness and loss of mobility.
