Hip Replacement Surgery

For many people hip problems may be minor and can be eased with the help of medications. They may also be offered steroid injections into the hip.

But for some people, the problems may be enough to make them think about a hip replacement as they may suffer from severe pain or find their quality of life is being affected.  Many people a year in the UK have hip replacement surgery where the ball and socket joint in the hip is replaced with an artificial joint, known as a prosthesis.

Hip Arthroscopy

Better known as 'keyhole surgery' hip arthroscopy allows a surgeon to investigate inside the hip using a camera inserted through small cuts in the skin.

This allows a diagnosis of any problems, probably cartilage related, and treatment using special designed surgical instruments - often at the same time.

A revision total hip replacement is an operation to take out the old hip replacement and put in a new one.

  • A hip replacement can fail for the following reasons.
