This custom surgical exhibit features three lateral chronological views of a male left hip detailing the initial steps of a typical partial hip replacement (femoral head component). Images and text include the incision site, exposure with excision of the diseased femoral head,  preparation of the femoral canal with a rasp for placement of a prosthesis (femoral prosthesis not shown to allow for discussion of different types of components).
