Arthritis

This is a term used by doctors to describe inflammation within a joint. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of joint disease. The surfaces within your joints become damaged so the joint doesn’t move as smoothly as it should. It causes joint pain and stiffness. Treatment ranges from conservative means, injections, fusion, excision or replacement. During hip or knee replacement surgery, the surgeon replaces the damaged joint surfaces with artificial parts. It can reduce pain and improve your mobility.

Arthroplasty

This is the surgical reconstruction or replacement of an arthritic joint. Hip and knee replacements are the most common major orthopaedic procedures. The goals are to restore function and relieve pain.

Hip revision

A hip revision, or repeat hip replacement, involves replacing a patient’s artificial hip joint if it has become loose, infected or worn out.

Therapeutic injection for joint pain relief

Injections are a fast and easy method of easing joint pain and inflammation in the hip caused by arthritis/osteoarthritis. Injections include steroids, to ease inflammation, and Hyaluronate, which helps the joint to move more smoothly.

Total hip replacement

In this surgical procedure, the hip joint is replaced by an implant. It can be performed as a total replacement or a half replacement. Hip replacement is one of the most common orthopaedic operations.

Trochanteric bursa injection

The trochanteric bursa is a sack of fluid sitting between the prominent bone of the outer side of the hip and the skin. A trochanteric bursa injection in performed with x-ray or ultrasound guidance.
