If untreated, hip pain can be severely debilitating, especially in later life. Most hip problems are caused by the wearing of the hip joint, or conditions such as degenerative arthritis and osteoarthritis.
The most common type of hip surgery required to treat severe hip damage is a hip replacement, of which there are several kinds. Although they were once considered a painful and invasive procedure, developments in modern technology mean that hip replacements are now quick and relatively simple procedures.
Most hip replacement procedures involve the removal of the worn, fractured or otherwise damaged hipbone, which is then replaced by an artificial implant. Depending on the severity of the condition, just the femoral head or both the femoral head and the acetabulum will be replaced.
Another common procedure within hip surgery is the repair of a femoral shaft or trochanteric fracture, which are two kinds of fracture to the thighbone in proximity to the hip joint. These are commonly treated by inserting pins, plates and screws into the bone to repair and reinforce the fracture.
