Hip Replacement Surgery at Spire Cardiff Hospital
A Hip Replacement is a procedure to replace a damaged hip, most commonly for arthritis but in some cases for fracture. It is a common procedure, with around 80000 being performed in the UK annually.
When non operative interventions, such as medication and changes to everyday activities, are not enough a hip replacement may be a good option. By replacing the damaged hip it is possible to relieve pain and allow a return to normal activities.
At Spire Cardiff Hospital, we offer trusted and clinically proven techniques and expert aftercare to replace painful damaged hip joints and help you get back to everyday activities.
A hip replacement is a common operation to remove worn or damaged parts of your hip joint and replace them with an artificial joint, to help you move more easily and to reduce pain.
Sometimes also called Hip arthroplasty
Hip arthroscopy is when a camera is placed inside the hip joint. It is less common than a knee arthroscopy as the hip is deeper and more difficult to assess.
Peri Acetabular Osteotomy
The purpose of a Peri Acetabular Osteotomy is to move the socket (acetabulum) of the hip joint into a more optimised position.
