In medicine, a prosthesis is an artificial device extension that replaces a missing body part.
It is part of the field of biomechatronics, the science of using mechanicaldevices with human muscle,
skeleton, and nervous systems to assist or enhance motor control lost by trauma, disease, ordefect.
Prostheses are typically used to replace parts lost by injury (traumatic) or missing from birth (congenital)
or to supplement defective body parts.
Particularly, hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which the hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic
implant. In total hip arthroplasty (THA), the inside of a femur has to be removed and an
implant/prosthesis will be inserted into the cavity either cemented or without cement.
