In partial hip replacement surgery, the diseased head of the femur (the "thigh bone") is removed and replaced with an artificial "ball" joint. The center of the femur is hollowed out, to afford room for the stem of the artificial joint.

The surgeon performing the partial hip replacement surgery will decide whether the new joint's stem should be held in place with bone cement.

Arthritis, cartilage degeneration and fracture are leading causes of partial hip replacement surgery, which is considered "partial" because the hip socket is not replaced.
