Whatever your age, you can be affected by problems with your hips. Whether old or young, it is a serious problem and the condition that most people suffer from is called osteoarthritis. This happens when the cartilage in the hip joint is damaged and the bones are left exposed and rub against one another causing severe pain. Hip problems can also be the result of falls, injuries sustained whilst doing sport or congenital diseases.
If you are affected by problems with your hips, it is more than likely that you will experience difficulty moving around and performing simple tasks. Walking, standing and bending not only become uncomfortable, they also become painful.
To match the range of issues that affect hips, there is also a range of treatments available. Whether you are suffering from arthritis, cartilage damage, joint inflammation or bone trauma, we can offer a full range of specialist treatments and support.
Our team of orthopaedic specialists and hip surgeons are recognised as experts in their line of work. They are always on hand to offer you reassurance and support right through from diagnosis, to treatment and follow-up care.
If your arthritis is in advanced stages you may need a full hip replacement. This means that a surgeon removes the neck of the femur and replaces it with a metal stent and artificial ball, using a metal cup to line the acetabular. The implants used are made from metal, plastic and ceramic depending on the part.
For arthritis that is less advanced, another procedure known as resurfacing surgery may be possible. This means that the whole hip joint does not have to be replaced, instead just the head of the femur and the lining of the acetabular are resurfaced.
Our team works closely with musculoskeletal physiotherapists helping you return to your former fitness levels as soon as possible.
