Italian term or phrase: bone surgery
This is from a paper describing the collection of bone marrow samples from volunteers during a surgical procedure.

"Cellule mesenchimali pluripotenti staminali umane (MSCs, Mesenchinal Stem Cells) sono state ricavate da campioni di midollo osseo (BM, Bone Marrow) derivanti da testa femorale (prelievo di spongiosa e midollo osseo) durante interventi chirurgici di protesizzazione totale dell’articolazione coxo-femorale."

This sounds like it shoud be "total hip replcement surgery".

But can anyone confirm/correct me?
