We specialise in hip surgery alongside knee and shoulder surgery in our Orthopaedic Department.
Our body contains various joints with the hip joint being the largest and one of the most fundamental joints in the body. The hip is known as a ball and socket joint – which is the most flexible type of joint in the body. It is especially important as it assists in core body movements - from walking to simply just standing, acting as a support for your upper body.
Hip surgery is usually used in the treatment of arthritis where the cartilage has been ground away; this can be particularly painful as cartilage is a type of tissue that has evolved to reduce friction in the joint. Other fractures or breaks in the hip are also treated through surgery.
Our team of specialised Consultant Surgeons at Park Hill Hospital are happy to consult and guide you through the surgery process.
Hip Surgeries Available
Hip Replacement Surgery
Hip replacement surgery occurs when the hip joints tire and have been subject to intense wear. Although treated with painkillers, hip surgery offers a long term solution to a painful problem and those affected by injury, fractures or arthritis (rheumatoid, osteoarthritis).
Revision Total Hip Replacement
On average hip replacements last between 10-20 years. However, if you are experiencing issues with your hip replacement either through dislocation, fractures or infection; it would be advised that you undertake a revision total hip replacement. This surgery enables surgeons to replace the damaged replacement hip joint with a newer, more suitable one.
Hip Arthroscopy Treatment
This treatment gives surgeons insight into a reoccurring hip problem. This is a minimally invasive procedure which involves the insertion of an arthroscope through a small cut made by surgeons in order to witness the damaged hip joint. The surgery allows the surgeon to provide a better and more accurate diagnosis to the existing problem through inspection.
Normally a hip arthroscopy is undertaken when non-surgical methods of treatment fail i.e. the use of painkillers or a treatment plan made by a physiotherapist.
Hip Block Injection
The hip block injection is a minor procedure which involves the use of a local anaesthetic combined with a synthetic steroid which is injected by Consultants operating with access to an x-ray, into the hip joint affected. This procedure predominantly is used by doctors to ease pain and identify the root cause of the pain experienced by the patient.
A hip block injection is used in instances where major hip surgery is not necessary, such as in the early years of having osteoarthritis.
