Hip pain treatments
Your GP will usually have provided your initial treatment with painkillers or arrange physiotherapy. If pain becomes severe and does not respond to simple treatment, surgery may be needed.
At BMI The Chaucer Hospital, our consultant hip surgeons have helped countless people with debilitating, life-limiting hip pain, to get back to a more active life, free of pain and stiffness. If you would like to meet with a consultant for assessment, diagnosis and a discussion about any suitable treatment options for your hip condition, please get in touch and we will arrange that for you.
Our surgeons will be able to advise which kind of hip surgery is appropriate for you.
The most common operation is a Total hip replacement. This involves removing the damaged hip joint and replacing it with a new artificial one (a prosthesis). This is usually required when advanced osteoarthritis in the hip has caused such damage in the joint that function and movement is severely limited.
For certain symptoms and conditions of the hip joint, keyhole surgery (hip arthroscopy) may be considered.
In some circumstances, your consultant may advise joint preservation treatment to help protect and maintain the function in your hip and avoid or delay the need for a total hip replacement.
If you already have a total hip replacement, which has become painful, your consultant will advise you whether revision hip replacement surgery is an option.
Whatever the nature of your hip pain, your consultant will ensure you receive the ideal treatment to get you out of pain and to effectively manage any other symptoms.
A physical examination of your hips and a general examination will take place.
Additional diagnostic tests and investigation a may be needed. Our comprehensive on-site imaging facilities include X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound, giving you fast access to them if required.
Once a diagnosis has been made, your consultant will discuss the results with you and talk through suitable treatment options so that you can make an informed decision.
If it’s determined that you do in fact need hip surgery, we can arrange that for you as soon as possible. The hip implants used at The Chaucer are state-of-the-art and tailored to your exact requirements to ensure optimal results.
