How we can help you

Orthopaedic hip conditions are common and can cause discomfort and even disability if not treated promptly. There are several conditions that can affect the hip, such as hip fractures, osteoarthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, and labral tears. These conditions can cause pain and difficulty with everyday activities such as walking, sitting, or standing for prolonged periods.

Fortunately, orthopaedic procedures can provide effective solutions to many hip conditions. For example, a hip replacement surgery is a common procedure used to treat severe hip arthritis. This procedure involves the removal of damaged cartilage and bone, and replacing it with an artificial hip joint. The artificial hip joint allows patients to move without the previous pain and discomfort they experienced. Another common procedure for hip conditions is hip arthroscopy. It is a minimally invasive procedure that allows an orthopaedic surgeon to access the inside of the hip joint using a small camera called an arthroscope. Through small incisions, surgeons can use the arthroscope to diagnose and treat a variety of hip conditions such as labral tears, hip impingement, and snapping hip syndrome.

So if you are experiencing any pain or discomfort in your hip joint, speak to one of our orthopaedic surgeons about the different treatment options available. With modern techniques and technologies, there’s no need to live with hip pain and discomfort.

Osteoarthritis is a common condition where the cartilage between bones in the hip joint wears down. This results in the bones rubbing against each other, causing pain, stiffness, and swelling in the hip area. It is more common in older adults but can also occur in young adults.

A broken hip is another hip condition that occurs when the hipbone is fractured. This can be due to falls, accidents, or a sudden impact. Broken hips are common in older adults and can cause severe pain, inability to move, and may require surgery to repair.

Dislocated hips are a common condition in younger people. It occurs when the hipbone is moved from its usual position. This can cause extreme pain, inability to move the leg, and other complications. In some cases, a dislocated hip may require surgery to fix.

Snapping hip syndrome is another hip condition that causes a clicking or snapping sound in the hip joint. This is often caused by the movement of a tendon or ligament over a bony protrusion. It can be caused by muscle imbalance, repetitive movements, or trauma.
