Hip Arthroscopy

Hip arthroscopy, also referred to as keyhole surgery or minimally invasive surgery, is performed through very small incisions to evaluate and treat a variety of hip conditions. Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure in which an arthroscope is inserted into a joint.

Femoro Acetabular Impingement FAI

Femoroacetabular Impingement FAI is a condition resulting from abnormal pressure and friction between the ball and socket of the hip joint resulting in pain and progressive hip dysfunction. This when left untreated leads to the development of secondary osteoarthritis of the hip.

Total Hip Replacement (THR)

Total Hip Replacement (THR) procedure replaces all or part of the hip joint with an artificial device (prosthesis) to eliminate pain and restore joint movement.

Hip Resurfacing

Arthritis is a general term covering numerous conditions where the joint surface (cartilage) wears out. The joint surface is covered by a smooth articular surface that allows pain free movement in the joint. This surface can wear out for a number of reasons; often the definite cause is not known.

Revision Hip Replacement

This maybe because part or all of your previous hip replacement needs to be revised. This operation varies from very minor adjustments to massive operations replacing significant amounts of bone and hence is difficult to describe in full.

Labral Repair

Labrum repair is a surgical technique recommended for treating labrum tear. Labrum is a triangular, fibrous, rigid cartilage structure lining the ball-and-socket joint of the hip. It provides cushioning support to these two joints. It also deepens the socket and helps to stabilize the joint.

Hip FAO Surgery

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition where the hip bones are abnormally shaped and the ball (femur or thigh bone head) and socket (acetabulum) joint of the hip bones rub against each other due to abnormal contact. Bone spurs form around the femoral head and/or acetabulum preventing smooth gliding movement of these bones against each other.

CAM/PINCER Impingement

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), often referred to as hip impingement is a condition where there is too much friction in the hip joint from bony irregularities causing pain and decreased range of hip motion. The femoral head and acetabulum rub against each other creating damage and pain to the hip joint.

Minimally Invasive Direct Anterior Hip Replacement

Total joint replacement surgery is one of the most advanced successful procedures in patients dealing with severe hip and knee pain. The goal of the surgery is to relieve pain and restore the normal functioning of the joint and help patient resume normal activities.

Hip Arthritis / Bursitis Non-surgical Treatment

NSAIDS: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are anti-inflammatory agents that are devoid of steroidal components but effective in relieving the pain & inflammation. They are available in the form of pills, liquids and topical creams and are considered as first-line of agents to relieve arthritic pain. They are available as both over the counter drugs and prescription drugs.

Ultrasound Guided Injection Therapy

Ultrasound imaging is a safe and effective imaging technique to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions. The ultrasound guided injections is a minimally invasive procedure and is used to treat various musculoskeletal pain conditions such as tendonitis, bursitis, neuritis and to perform cyst aspiration.
