The hip and knee joints are one of the main functional joints in the 

body, often undergoing great stresses. It usually gets lots of wear

and tear and as a result, a wide variety of problems can occur.

 

Often occurring hip diseases, injuries and problems include:

  • Hip Bursitis

  • Inflammatory Arthritis of the Hip

  • Osteoarthritis of the Hip

  • Osteonecrosis of the Hip

  • Hip Pain

  • Sports Injuries

  • Muscle Strains in the Thigh

  • Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI)

 

Our specialists can offer a wide range of hip treatments to help patients.

 

Some of the most often performed treatments include:

  • Hip Arthroscopy

  • Total Hip Replacement (THR)

  • Hip Resurfacing

 

Hip arthroscopy Hip arthroscopy is performed through small incisions (about 1cm each) using a camera to visualise the inside of a joint. This allows a surgeon to get a better view of the hip bone in question.

 

Hip replacement surgery provides a long term solution for a worn or damaged hip. The operation replaces both the natural socket (the  acetabulum) and the rounded ball at the head of the thigh-bone (the femoral head) with artificial parts (prosthetics).

 

Hip resurfacing An alternative method to hip replacement is metal on metal (MoM) hip resurfacing. This involves replacing the diseased, or damaged, surfaces in the hip joint with metal plating, which requires less prosthetics and less bone removal.

 

Hip resurfacing should be considered for people with advanced hip disease. All types of hip replacement surgery are extremely beneficial, offering an end to joint pain, increased mobility and a better quality of life.
