Are you suffering from hip pain? Is it affecting your mobility? Hip pain can cause severe discomfort and pain making normal day-to-day activities a struggle. Our team of experienced Orthopaedic Consultants are here to offer advice and treatment.
At Kingsbridge Private Hospital, our Orthopaedic Consultants are the best in their field. In the luxury surroundings of a 5-star private hospital, our team of experienced healthcare professionals offer consultations, tests, treatment and surgery for a wide range of hip conditions.
The hip joint is susceptible to general wear and tear and damage. This can result in serious hip joint pain for some people. Hip Pain can also be caused by various forms of arthritis, bone diseases, bone abnormalities, and injury.
At Kingsbridge Private Hospital we offer a complete care package with a full or partial hip replacement. We offer hip replacement surgery to replace joints that have been damaged or worn away by injury or arthritis. We are also able to provide hip revisions of replacement hips that need to be renewed due to it becoming loose, infected or worn out.
Hip replacement is one of the most common procedures performed for hip pain. This operation involves replacing a damaged or worn hip joint with an artificial version which provides long term relief from hip joint pain for many patients.
In a normal hip joint the ‘ball’ at the top of your thigh bone (femur) moves smoothly in the ‘socket’ of your pelvis, which has a lining of shiny cartilage. The cartilage stops your bones from rubbing together and has no feeling (like fingernails). If this cartilage becomes worn away, the underlying bone becomes exposed and your joint will be painful and stiff, making walking and moving around painful. A new hip joint can help improve your mobility and reduce the pain.
At Kingsbridge Private Hospital we take care of the complete patient journey, from consultation to investigations to surgery, if required. Your safety and wellbeing is of paramount importance and our experienced team of expert Consultant Surgeons and Nurses ensure you are always in safe hands.
