Hip Procedures

The hip joint is a “ball and socket” shaped joint. It can be affected by diseases such as osteoarthritis leading to destruction of the lining of the joint, the articular cartilage.  Surgery can be considered when pain in the hip is affecting a patient’s quality of life and non-operative measures such as physiotherapy, walking aids and pain killers are no longer helping.

Hip replacement surgery is one of the most successful operations of our time in improving someone’s quality of life.
