I was assuming a THR procedure had replaced the femur (at least the upper part including the trochanters, head, neck, and part of the shaft) with an implant. Granted, mine was done over 20 years ago so maybe that is less commonly done now. My apologies.

Only the femoral head and neck are removed on the "femur side" of the joint, the socket or acetabulum is also replaced in a total hip replacement. The greater trochanter remains as does the trochanteric bursa...
