The hip joint gets lots of wear and tear and is one for the main functional joints in the body, often undergoing great stresses. As a result a wide variety of problems can occur.
By visiting our consultant web-sites Mr Edward Britton, Mr Nick Carrington and Mr Tony Maury you can learn about some of the more common hip problems, what causes them and without using medical jargon, what can be done to resolve them. We have also tried to give an indication on associated risks, success rates and the recovery process. You will find information on the following:
- Muscle Strains in the Thigh
- Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI)
- Hip Bursitis
- Inflammatory Arthritis of the Hip
- Osteoarthritis of the Hip
- Osteonecrosis of the Hip
- Hip Arthroscopy
- Total Hip Replacement
- Hip Resurfacing
- Hip Revision
We continue to develop our learning and surgical techniques and with important patient feedback will continue to add information that we hope you find useful. Of course nothing beats a face-to-face consultation and if you have any of the identified conditions, you are advised to arrange an appointment to see one of our orthopaedic specialists.
