Introduction: Uncemented total hip arthroplasty is a time-tested remarkable surgical procedure that provides mobility, stability, and better quality of life for thousands of patients, especially young patients throughout the world. Thus, uncemented total hip arthroplasty today has become the main mode of hip replacement, especially in young patients. However, uncemented total hip arthroplasty has its own drawbacks such as inadequate initial fixation, excessive wear, and periprosthetic bone loss due to particle-induced lysis. Materials and Methods: This prospective study was conducted between September 2018 and August 2020. A total of 30 patients were selected from patients attending emergency department and outpatient department of orthopedics. For all prospective cases, a detailed history regarding mode and mechanism of injury (in case of trauma) was taken followed by clinical examination, and the patient was documented. Follow-up visits were made at 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, and periodically thereafter. Results: In our study, functional outcomes after uncemented total hip replacement were excellent in 30% of cases, good in 53.33% of cases, fair in 13.33% of cases, and poor in 3.33% of cases by using Harris Hip Score. No patients showed any radiographic signs of loosening. No patients showed any complications during follow-up. Conclusion: In our study, the results are fair to poor in noncompliant young patients with high functional demands. The results are fair to poor in patients with bilateral affections such as chronic arthritis and avascular necrosis in which the patient undergoes only unilateral total hip arthroplasty.
