Orthopaedics is a surgical specialty which deals with the accurate diagnosis, assessment and treatment of the joints, muscles and tendons, bones and other related structures.

Due to the considerable demands the hip joint suffers over time and it’s role in transferring force from the legs to the body while needing to maintain a large range of motion, hip pathology is varied. Some categories include:

Unique to our The Cavell Hospital Hip surgery team is that our specialists can offer patient-specific hip joint implants for our total hip replacement operations. Traditional off the shelf joint implants follow a one size fits all philosophy and have been used for forty to fifty years. With these types of prostheses there are compromises to be made due to the generic shape these implants offer; Often, traditional implants behave less like the original joint did due to a mismatch between the patient’s own anatomy and biomechanics and that of the implant. However, custom fit hip joint replacements are created by taking precise measurements for each patient with unique 3D CT scanning technology ensuring a perfect fit. Due to this fit, made to measure hip replacements have a better functional outcome for patients and have a reduced post operative complication rate.
