Hip

  • Normal Anatomy of the Hip joint

    The thigh bone, femur, and the pelvis, acetabulum, join to form the hip joint. The hip joint is a “ball and socket” joint. The “ball” is the head of the femur, or thigh bone, and the “socket” is the cup shaped acetabulum.

  • Femoro Acetabular Impingement (FAI)

    Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition where there is too much friction in the hip joint from bony irregularities causing pain and decreased range of hip motion.

  • Inflammatory Arthritis of the Hip

    Inflammation of the joints is referred to as arthritis. The inflammation arises when the smooth covering (cartilage) at the end surfaces of the bones wears away.

  • Hip Labrum Tears

    Hip labrum is a cartilaginous membrane lining the socket of the hip joint. Labrum serves many functions where it acts as shock absorber, lubricates the joint, and distributes the pressure equally.

  • Hip Bursitis

    Hip bursitis is a painful condition caused by inflammation of a bursa in the hip. Bursae are fluid filled sacs present in joints between bone and soft tissue to reduce friction and provide cushioning during movement.

  • Surgical Approaches to the Hip

    To perform a total hip replacement, the hip joint must be opened and the hip dislocated. The work done inside to replace the joint is the same no matter what approach is taken.

  • Hip Arthroscopy

    Arthroscopy, also referred to as keyhole or minimally invasive surgery, is a procedure in which an arthroscope is inserted into a joint to check for any damage and repair it simultaneously.

  • Total Hip Replacement (THR)

    Total hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which the damaged cartilage and bone is removed from the hip joint and replaced with artificial components.

  • Hip Resurfacing

    Surface replacement of the hip is an alternative to traditional hip replacement for the treatment of conditions such as osteoarthritis, avascular necrosis, and post-traumatic arthritis. It provides a bone-conserving artificial hip joint, and is designed to preserve bone for younger, active patients.

  • Revision Hip Replacement

    Revision hip replacement is a complex surgical procedure in which all or part of a previously implanted hip-joint is replaced with a new artificial hip-joint.

  • Anterior Hip Replacement

    Anterior Hip Replacement is a minimally invasive hip surgery to replace the hip joint without cutting through any muscles.

  • Direct Anterior hip replacement

    Total joint replacement surgery is one of the most advanced successful procedures in patients dealing with severe hip and knee pain. The goal of the surgery is to relieve pain and restore the normal functioning of the joint and help patient resume normal activities.

  • Results

    The following data is from the 2008 publication of the Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Registry. This is the largest source of information comparing total hip replacement (THR) with hip resurfacing arthroplasty (HRA), as both procedures have been in use in Australia for approximately 7 years.
