Hip treatment at Adelaide Arthroplasty Clinic

A normal hip should be pain free

A normal native or artificial hip joint should move freely and painlessly. In the native hip, there is a layer of thick, strong cartilage, lubricated by synovial fluid, that enables a smooth movement. Trauma damage, wear and tear through sport or aging, osteo or inflammatory arthritis and other diseases like congenital conditions and infections all have the potential to interfere with your hip joint’s normal functionality and lubrication, causing pain, stiffness or inability to move normally. In an artificial hip the metal, ceramic and polyethylene bearings replace the cartilage but provide the same smooth movement. Infection, fracture, dislocation and wear and tear are the most common causes that affect the normal function of an artificial hip replacement 

There are many conditions and injuries that we commonly see, and many that are not so common. As we work together as a team, you can feel confident that we’ve “seen it before” and have practiced the approaches, treatments and surgeries to get you back to normal, painless function.  

We will assess your hip and discuss the best treatment options with you. 

We specialise in all adult and adolescent hip conditions. Some of the hip conditions we treat include:

  • Osteo and inflammatory arthritis
  • Bursitis and tendinitis
  • Fractures and dislocations of the femur and pelvis
  • Paediatric hip conditions like dysplasia, Perthes disease and slipped capital femoral epiphysis
  • Osteonecrosis of the hip
  • Deformity correction of leg length angulation and malrotation
  • Femoroacetabular impingement
  • Failed and painful hip replacement including multiply revised hip replacements

Some of the procedures we perform include:

 

  • primary hip replacement
  • revision hip replacement including complex revisions of multiply revised hips, infections and with major bone defects
  • osteotomies of the femur and pelvis
  • Hip preservation surgery
