This ball consists of a metal set, which is supported into the hollow space present the inside of the femur bone along with bone cement. The worn-out socket is replaced with a plastic socket.

In simple words, Hip replacement is a surgical process where the hip joint is replaced with a prosthetic implant. Usually, hip pain is caused because of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fractures, and bone necrosis. In some cases, the conditions improve, but there is no treatment for joint pain, and some of the severe cases are controlled with rehabilitation and medication.

This results in the removal of the affected hip and is replaced with a prosthesis. This prosthesis is made from metal and plastic.
