There are many younger patients who have extensive hip joint arthritis making walking, sitting, climbing difficult because of severe pain and deformity.
In these individuals if they are medically fit, it is advantageous to replace both the hips in one surgical sitting. This allows them equal pain relief in both hips, it also restores length of both limbs making it equal and allows early return to normalcy.
With ceramic on ceramic implants available, these patients can start to walk next day after surgery. Initially they would need walker for few days, but later they can walk without any support.
The surgery is safe, recovery is faster and pain relief very satisfying
It is very rare to fracture both side hip sockets (acetabula) and still rare that both sides under go arthrosis (wear and tear) and require replacement surgery.
