A hip replacement is a very serious and involved surgery that is due to extensive injuries to a person's hip. A hip replacement involves the end of the femur closest to the body (proximal) and the lower part of the pelvis (acetabulum). Victims of a New Mexico trucking accident who sustain serious injuries may need a hip replacement in catastrophic collisions.
