Hip surgery at BMI Ross Hall Hospital covers all disorders, injuries and conditions relating to the hip. It also covers surrounding musculoskeletal structures, including the muscles and ligaments around the hip joint.

If you’re suffering from chronic hip pain, your consultant, supported by the BMI Ross Hall Hospital team can offer a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan to put you on the path to recovery.

Most hip pain problems won’t usually require surgery and can often be treated with non-surgical options. Treatments may include painkillers, physiotherapy and joint injections. However, hip surgery is often needed when these methods no longer work, and the hip joint has become so damaged that it reduces mobility.

Hip issues such as these affect a wide range of people, from younger age groups through to seniors and can be caused by a range of factors such as sports injuries and hip arthritis.

Hip Arthritis

Hip arthritis is one of the most common reasons for seeing a hip consultant. It usually starts with buttock or groin pain that becomes more frequent over 2-5 years, causing patients to lose mobility and function with increasing pain that stops responding to painkillers. Pain at night that keeps you awake can often be the final straw that prompts an appointment with a consultant hip surgeon.

The most common diagnosis would be an X-Ray to diagnose osteoarthritis, which is the most common form of hip arthritis. Patients will receive guidance and treatment from specialist hip surgeons and physiotherapists to mitigate the pain and enable them to live life to the fullest. To come to a treatment solution that is right for you, your consultant will talk to you about your lifestyle goals, whether it be playing regular sport or simply walking to the shops without pain.

Hip Replacement

One of the most common treatment options for osteoarthritis and a common reason for patients to visit BMI Ross Hall Hospital is 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 materials.

Consultants at BMI Ross Hall Hospital perform thousands of hip replacement surgeries per year and offer a full range of different joint prostheses depending on your individual condition. Often, these can be performed as a minimally invasive hip replacement, meaning minimal soft tissue trauma and faster recovery.

The main benefit of hip replacement surgery is to alleviate pain. Following a successful hip replacement, your hip function will improve, and your mobility will increase. You will be able to move more freely without pain and have a better quality of life. Ultimately, you can get back to doing the things you love.

Common Non-Arthritis Conditions

The hip joint is an integral part of the body, used constantly. As such, there are many common conditions that affect your hips, including:

  • Hip impingement
  • Labral tear
  • Hamstring injuries
  • Abductor injuries
  • Gluteal injuries

Hip surgeons at BMI Ross Hall Hospital regularly use innovative techniques to perform a wide variety of procedures. Whatever problem you are experiencing with your hip, we can ensure that it is treated with the most appropriate solution.

The recommended treatment will be tailored to you and dependent on your specific condition, symptoms and lifestyle requirements. Treatments including pain medication, physiotherapy, joint injections and surgery such as hip arthroscopy are all available at BMI Ross Hall Hospital.

Your consultant will guide you through your treatment and explain everything so that you are informed and empowered about your own health. Each person is unique, and our individual anatomy may affect our hips in different ways.

At your initial hip surgery consultation, the consultant will first assess your symptoms and understand how severe your pain is. They will then perform a thorough physical assessment. They will take the time to discuss what kind of activities it prevents you from doing. This may be anything from not being able to walk more than a couple of miles to not being able to get up the stairs without pain.

This information will allow them to determine what the best diagnostic tools are to help identify your condition.

At BMI Ross Hall Hospital, our patients have access to the most comprehensive service for private orthopaedic diagnostics in Scotland.

These are some common scans and tests that your consultant may recommend depending on your specific symptoms and circumstance:

  • X-ray - Used to produce images of your hips internal structures, usually to diagnose osteoarthritis for a hip replacement.

  • MRI scan - A magnetic field is used to produce detailed imaging of your hip. An MRI scan helps your consultant further investigate problems signified by other imaging tests.

  • Ultrasound - Sound waves are used to produce internal images of the hip.

Once the test results are ready, a follow-up appointment will be arranged with your consultant to discuss them and review the best form of tailored treatment for you. Whatever the following steps, we’ll provide clarity and answer any questions you might have to put you at ease.

Often X-rays and common treatments such as steroid injections will be performed on the same day. If surgery is required, this will be arranged with your consultant for a day and time that suits you.

If you undergo a surgical hip procedure with the experienced team at BMI Ross Hall Hospital, you can rest assured that you will be in the best hands to help you through to a quick and effective recovery.

The amount of time you spend in the hospital and the support you receive will depend on your procedure. Arthroscopy procedures, for example, are commonly conducted as a day case meaning you can leave on the same day. Usually, hip replacements will require you to stay one or more nights in the hospital.

One of our physiotherapists will visit you during your stay to ensure your mobility is improving and you can get in and out of bed and downstairs ok before being discharged. You will also be offered physiotherapy sessions for post-op recovery as it’s essential to do exercises at home to achieve a full recovery. A consultant will follow-up for six weeks post-op to check all is working well and answer any questions you may have.

The hip surgery department at BMI Ross Hall Hospital provides patients with state-of-the-art facilities and a welcoming environment to effectively and accurately diagnose, treat and manage the multitude of hip conditions, including hip arthritis.

Our excellent team of specialists will ensure you receive tailored treatment and will be there to comfort and reassure you from initial consultation and diagnosis to treatment and throughout the lifespan of your condition.
