Total Hip Replacement (THR) is a restorative procedure aimed at managing hip-joint ailments that display little to no response to conventional medical therapy. The procedure has improved patients’ quality of life and overall survival. After conducting a comprehensive review of a case of a fortuitous left hip replacement procedure conducted on a senior 93-year-old male patient whose ability to hike was impaired by bilateral hip joint osteoarthritis, the success factors of this procedure were determined. After enduring a surgical excision of the femur’s head and proximal neck, his walking ability was restored. There were no physical activity-related complications. A comprehensive cross-sectional study showed that good surgical excision, effective cementing techniques, proper placement of implants, the young patient age at the time of THR, and the underlying cause for the surgery were the elements attributed to the procedure’s success.
