Treatment for hip problems

All treatments for hip problems aim to provide pain relief and an increased range of movement and mobility, with the object of assisting a better quality of life.

Non-surgical treatment

Non-surgical measures are always considered as the first line of approach for hip problems. Options include drug therapy, physiotherapy and walking aids to help with mobility.

Further options are available for patients whose hip discomfort is due to referred pain from other areas such as the back.

Surgery

Surgery for hip problems is generally considered when non-surgical options are not providing enough relief from pain and disability and a patient's daily activities are being seriously affected. If the pain and disability justify surgery, there is no age limit.

Surgery is now considered as an option at a much earlier stage than in the past due to advances in materials and surgical techniques that are likely to provide longer lasting benefits.

There are different types of hip surgery, with a wide range of prostheses (artificial joints or parts of joints) available.

Three main types of hip surgery are available at the London Hip Unit. Surgery at the London Hip Unit is carried out by Miss Muirhead-Allwood, one of the UK's leading specialists in surgical procedures for hip problems.
