Hip Surgery in Glasgow

If you’re suffering with chronic hip pain, our team of hip consultants and physiotherapists can offer a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan to put you on the path to recovery.

Total 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.

Hip Resurfacing

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

You don’t have to put up with chronic knee pain. If non-surgical treatments are no longer effective, there are a range of treatments that may help; from knee replacement surgery to knee arthroscopy and partial knee replacement.

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.

Knee Arthroscopy

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 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.

Shoulder Surgery

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

With us, you can rest assured that we’ll look after your needs every step of the way; from ensuring a fast diagnosis to providing efficient treatment to helping you to make a speedy recovery.

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.

INTERNAL BRACE

The Internal Brace has revolutionised the way patients recover and the time in which they do so, is a ‘non-absorbable ribbon’ which can protect and support any ligament repair or reconstruction. It acts like a seatbelt mimicking normal anatomy and providing protection only if the repaired ligament is excessively loaded and at risk of injury.

The brace stabilises the joint, crucially allowing patients to begin light exercise within a week. While exercise is gradually increased in intensity and duration, the ligament/tendon grows through the Internal Brace and then quickly and naturally remodels and, in some cases, reattaches itself to bone.

Because the affected area does not need to be incapacitated, it does not need to be put in a plaster cast, which means minimal loss of condition for the surrounding muscles and a shortened recovery time.
