Conditions Diagnosed & Treated

Below is an outline of some of the major pathologies that we specialise in here, but typically most disorders of the hip that warrant a specialist referral can be successfully investigated through our team. If you are suffering from hip problems and are looking for definitive medical support then please let us know.

Avascular Necrosis

Hip avascular necrosis is not uncommon, with numerous patients seeking treatment each year. It is also known as osteonecrosis or aseptic necrosis. It is a significant cause for concern regarding the health of the hip, its structure and stability but can be effectively treated.

Labral Tears

The hip labrum is a ring of cartilage that runs along the outside rim of your hip joint. Along with cushioning the hip joint, the labrum acts like a rubber seal or gasket to help hold the ball at the top of your thighbone securely within your hip socket.

Osteoarthritis

Hip arthritis or hip osteoarthritis is a common degenerative disease that results in pain and stiffness that progressively worsen as the disease progresses; often attributed to ageing. Many treatments exist to support the joint and minimise pain.

Gluteal Tendinopathy

Gluteal tendinopathy, also known as hip abductor tendinopathy, is a common condition that affects the tendons surrounding the hip joint. It often causes discomfort and limits mobility, impacting daily activities and overall quality of life.

Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (Trochanteric Bursitis)

Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome, often shortened to GTPS (previously termed Trochanteric Bursitis) is concerned with the muscles of the thigh, their attachment to the bones and the fluid-filled sacs in the joints known as bursa.

Hip fractures

The hip is made up of the joint between the top of the thigh bone (the femur) and the socket of the pelvis (the acetabulum).

Femoroacetabular impingement

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition in which extra bone grows along one or both of the bones that form the hip joint — giving the bones an irregular shape. Because they do not fit together perfectly, the bones rub against each other during movement.

HIP TREATMENTS INCLUDE:

Hip arthroscopy

Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive same-day (outpatient) surgical procedure that uses a device called an arthroscope to diagnose and treat hip conditions. An arthroscope is a flexible tube with a camera that is connected to a video monitor.

Hip Replacement - Customised Total

Custom Total Hip Replacement requires a pre-operative CT scan of the hip joint. Using computer software, a virtual 3D model of the patient’s bone anatomy is generated to help the surgeon achieve greater accuracy in positioning the femoral and the acetabular components of the hip implant.

Hip Replacement - Direct Anterior Approach

Hip arthritis or hip osteoarthritis is a common disease that usually results in increasing pain and stiffness over time. Total hip replacement surgery is an effective method of treating hip osteoarthritis when non-surgical methods have failed. Direct Anterior Approach (DAA) is a minimally invasive way of performing this surgery that reduces pain and allows earlier recovery.

Hip Replacement - Minimally Invasive

The goals are similar with minimally invasive total hip replacement, but the surgeon cuts less of the tissue surrounding the hip. The artificial implants used are the same as those used for traditional hip replacement. 

Hip Replacement - OPS guided

Revolutionising total hip arthroplasty designed to optimise stability, longevity, biomechanics and patient outcomes

Hip Replacement - Revision

Over time, a hip replacement can fail for a variety of reasons. It may be recommended that you have a second operation to remove some or all of the parts of the original prosthesis and replace them with new ones. This procedure is called revision total hip replacement.

Hip Resurfacing

Hip resurfacing is an advanced surgical technique that can be used to treat painful arthritis. It has received a resurgence in media attention due to professional tennis star Andy Murray and NBS basketball player Isaiah Thomas both undergoing hip resurfacing surgery and successfully returning to competitive professional sports.

Periacetabular Osteotomy

Periacetabular osteotomy (PAO), also called Bernese or Ganz Osteotomy, is a hip preservation surgery performed to correct a hip problem that a child is born with or that develops over time (developmental deformity of the hip).
