If you’re suffering with chronic hip pain, our team of Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons provide a range of different hip surgeries depending on your specific needs. From hip replacement surgery to hip resurfacing or hip arthroscopy, our goal is to get you back to a normal level of activity as quickly as possible.
Hip Replacement Surgery
If you’re living with chronic hip pain, hip replacement surgery may be a solution. If you decide to have surgery, the damaged hip joint will be removed and replaced with an artificial ball and socket made from durable artificial materials.
An alternative to total hip replacement, hip resurfacing repairs the damaged tissue around your hip socket. This type of surgery only replaces the femoral head and neck as opposed to the whole joint.
Knee surgery can help to relieve debilitating symptoms associated with chronic conditions, such as arthritis. If you’re experiencing severe pain and stiffness in your knee joint, then knee surgery may be required. The aim of knee surgery is to restore function, increase mobility and reduce painful symptoms.
Knee Replacement Surgery
If you choose to have knee replacement surgery, the damaged or deteriorated part of your knee will be removed and replaced with an artificial joint. Not only can a new knee significantly reduce or remove your pain, it can also help you to live life to the full again.
Also called keyhole surgery, a knee arthroscopy is performed to diagnose and treat problems relating to the knee. One benefit of this procedure is that your recovery time can be quicker.
ACL Reconstruction Surgery
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a vital part of your knee as it helps to keep it stable. If you’ve torn or ruptured your ACL it can be repaired with ACL reconstruction surgery. Successful surgery can restore function and help prevent your knee from giving way.
Constant shoulder pain can make day-to-day life quite difficult. If you’re considering surgery, we offer a range of shoulder treatments; including rotator cuff surgery, shoulder arthroscopy and shoulder replacement.
ACP JOINT INJECTION THERAPY
Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) Therapy for osteoarthritis and sports injuries is for the treatment of painful inflammation by activating the body’s own factors in the blood. It is an outpatient procedure that takes less than 30 minutes and is well tolerated by the body as it’s one of the body’s own active substances.
How does it work?
- Blood is drawn from a vein in the arm.
- A separation procedure extracts and concentrates the desired body substances (ACP – Autologous Conditioned Plasma).
- These substances are injected into the affected region.
For ostheoarthritis - Physical activity is often restricted by osteoarthritis. Typical symptoms in early osteoarthritis include joint ache and morning stiffness as well as pain after long periods of inactivity that subsides after a short walk. These are all caused by wear and tear of the joint cartilage. ACP Therapy is recommended for patients with painful mild to moderate osteoarthritis and can also provide relief in tendinitis.
For sports injuries - If you are currently in rehabilitation or being treated for a sports injury, you can support your body’s self-healing processes. ACP Therapy can support the healing process in most injuries to the locomotor system involving ligaments and tendons as well as in muscle injuries and tendinitis.
