Hip Surgery & Procedures

Hip Arthroscopy

Hip Arthroscopy is a type of minimally-invasive orthopaedic hip procedure that can treat a range of issues. Patients with osteoarthritis, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and many other hip joint problems benefit from this type of hip surgery. As this is an arthroscopic procedure, only small incisions are needed. Hip arthroscopy is generally associated with faster healing and recovery times compared to traditional hip surgery.

Hip Osteotomy

Hip osteotomy is a type of hip procedure that surgically realigns the bones of the hip joint. This allows for easier movement with less pain. Patients find this orthopaedic procedure eases symptoms of osteoarthritis, reduces their hip pain caused by other joint issues and prevents or delays their need for hip replacement surgery.

Hip Replacement Surgery

A hip replacement, also known as total hip arthroplasty, is a type of orthopaedic surgery that replaces a damaged hip joint with a prosthetic joint. This hip treatment involves the removal of the existing hip joint and the use of an artificial joint in its place. Patients with chronic hip pain, hip joint injury or a condition such as osteoarthritis or hip dysplasia often benefit from hip replacement surgery after physiotherapy, painkillers and steroid shots have failed to manage their hip pain.

Hip Resurfacing Surgery

Hip resurfacing is an orthopaedic procedure that replaces the lining of the hip with metal implants. This procedure preserves much more of the natural bone of the hip and femur when compared to total hip replacement. Bone preservation makes it a good option for younger patients who struggle with hip pain and mobility issues but want to avoid having a total hip replacement for as long as possible

Hip Conditions

Hip Osteoarthritis

Arthritis is a condition affecting the joints, causing pain and inflammation. It is relatively common and can affect people of all ages, even children, however, it is most common in people over the age of 60. Arthritis may affect one or several joints and often affects the “weight-bearing” joints, such as the knees and hips. There are over 100 kinds of arthritis and it is a progressive disease, meaning it cannot be cured and may worsen over time.

Hip Fracture

The hip joint is shaped like a ball and socket. The “ball” is the femoral head (the top of the thigh bone/femur) and the “socket” is the acetabulum (pelvis), which is shaped like a cup. Ligaments, tendons and muscles hold the bones in place. A hip fracture is a break or crack in either the neck or head of the femur or in both the ball and socket. It is a serious condition that can cause a lot of pain and potentially be life-threatening. If you suspect you have broken your hip, you must seek urgent medical attention.

Hip Dysplasia

Hip dysplasia (or acetabular dysplasia) is a condition where the hip joint doesn’t function correctly. In babies, it may be called “developmental dysplasia of the hip” (DDH) or “congenital hip dislocation” (CHD).

Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI)

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition caused by abnormal contact in the hip joint. The hip joint is shaped like a ball and socket. The “ball” is the femoral head (the top of the thigh bone/femur) and the “socket” is the acetabulum (pelvis), which is shaped like a cup. The hip also has two layers of cartilage, the rubbery tissue, to help the bones move smoothly over one another.
