Once all non-operative treatment options such as activity modification, weight loss, physiotherapy, pain killers, and injection therapy have been exhausted and you are suitable for surgical intervention, I will offer you a total hip replacement. This is a very successful operation that is routinely performed in patients with hip osteoarthritis.
The benefits of having a hip replacement are:
- Reduced pain
- Reduced stiffness
- Increased mobility
- Improved quality of life
The replacement hip joint is made up of a combination of special metals, plastic or ceramic.
See below for some before and after X-rays of total hip replacement surgeries I have performed to treat Osteoarthritis. Drag the sliders to switch between the before and after images.
If you think you may benefit from hip joint replacement surgery, please don’t hesitate to Enquire Now so that we can arrange a consultation.
