Hip surgery

Rapid diagnosis and effective hip treatment.

At The Ridgeway Hospital, we offer a range of effective treatment options for people battling hip pain. Hip pain can be caused by various conditions, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Hip bursitis
  • A hip sprain or fracture
  • Tendonitis

There are many treatments available that can ease your hip pain without the need for surgery.

However, for some people, less invasive methods simply can’t treat their hip pain. In these cases, you might be recommended hip surgery.

Hip replacement surgery

Hip replacement surgery can eliminate pain and improve mobility in your hip joint.

Your Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon will recommend a hip replacement operation if you have significant damage to your hip caused by an accident or injury, or from a condition such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.

Depending on your condition, you will undergo either partial hip replacement surgery (also known as a hemiarthroplasty), or total hip replacement surgery (also referred to as an arthroplasty). The procedure recommended will depend on the extent of damage inside your hip joint.

During total hip replacement surgery, both your femoral head (the top of your thigh bone) and acetabulum (the socket in your pelvis) will be removed and replaced with an artificial component. This is known as a prosthesis. During partial hip replacement surgery, only your femoral head will be replaced with a prosthesis.

Hip arthroscopy surgery

Hip arthroscopy is a keyhole operation that helps diagnose and treat a range of problems that cause chronic hip pain. During this minimally invasive procedure, your Consultant Surgeon will make a few small incisions in your hip. They will then insert a small camera to examine the inside of your joint and diagnose the cause of your hip pain. Some treatment options can be performed arthroscopically during this procedure, using specially designed surgical instruments inserted through the same small incisions.

Hip resurfacing surgery

During hip resurfacing, the damaged surfaces of your femur head (the top of your thighbone) and your acetabulum (the socket in your pelvis) will be reshaped and replaced with a cover. Hip resurfacing helps significantly reduce pain and improve your mobility.
