Hip Surgery Information and Treatment Options
Hip surgery is a medical procedure that is performed to treat a variety of hip-related conditions. The surgery may involve repairing damaged or diseased joint tissue, replacing all or part of the hip joint with an artificial joint, or realigning the hip bones to improve stability and reduce pain. The decision to undergo hip surgery is typically made after a thorough evaluation of the patient's medical history, physical examination, and imaging studies. The procedure is generally considered a safe and effective treatment option, with most patients experiencing significant pain relief and improved mobility following surgery. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications that should be discussed with the patient prior to the procedure.
Hip Replacement Surgery
Total hip replacement is performed on patients with a worn out/arthritic hip joint, where symptoms (such as pain and stiffness) have failed to respond to non-operative treatments such as pain-killers and physiotherapy. Robotic assisted hip replacement is now available. More about a hip replacement
Revision Hip Replacements
Total Hip replacement is a highly successful operation with over 70,000 operations performed in the UK last year (National Joint Registry). Find out more about revision hip replacement
Hip arthroscopy is a relatively new procedure which allows the surgeon to diagnose and treat hip disorders by providing a clear view of the inside of the hip with very small incisions. Find out more about hip arthroscopy.
This is a diagnostic test in that it is sometimes used to make sure that pain is coming from the hip joint before other surgery (such as hip replacement) is planned. Find out more about a hip block.
Robotic Assisted Hip Replacement Surgery
Mr Simon Garrett is proud to offer robotic orthopaedic procedures for patients requiring a total knee replacement or total hip replacement, by making use of a MAKOplasty robotic arm.
