2.  After which, the edges are made further smooth to fit the artificial implant properly and snugly.

3. Some joint replacement surgeries need bone cement, while others not, it depends upon the age and the general health of the patient.

4. After that, the ball is placed on the hip bone that will mimic the original head.

5. The pelvic part is also replaced with an artificial implant or the cap of the ball.

6. A spacer is also provided between the two components so that they glide smoothly over each other thus ensuring painless and full range movements.

7. The incision is then closed and the patient is sent in the recovery room.
