Osteoarthritis of the Hip
is characterized by pain and loss of function. Underlying causes span a vast array of different pathologies ranging from developmental dysplasia of the hip in newborns, to other paediatric disorders, posttraumatic conditions, excess weight, or osteonecrosis.
Treatment options include weight loss, appropriate exercise, patient education, hyaluronate injections, and pain medication as needed. While surgical correction of underlying deformities can be undertaken in selected cases, total hip replacement is the treatment of choice for advanced stage disease. Our experienced surgeons perform primary as well as revision surgeries.
