Hip surgery is a surgical procedure for the treatment of a hip injury or hip condition. The procedure involves repairing diseased or damaged structures of the hip joint in order to eliminate pain and restore normal hip function.
Hip Labral Repair
Hip labral repair is a surgical procedure to treat hip labral tears. A hip labral tear is a partial or complete rupture of the hip labrum, a ring of fibrous cartilaginous tissue that surrounds the socket of the hip joint. These tears are most commonly seen in athletes involved in high-impact sports such as ice hockey, soccer, and football and can also occur due to traumatic injury or degenerative conditions.
Hip Preservation Surgery
The hip is a ball and socket joint comprising of the femur (thigh bone) and the pelvic bone. The head of the femur (ball) articulates with a cavity (socket) called the acetabulum in the pelvic bone. To facilitate the smooth and frictionless movement of the hip joint, the articulating surfaces of the femur head and acetabulum are covered by spongy articular cartilage.
Hip Fracture Surgery
Hip fractures involve a break that occurs near the hip in the upper part of the femur or thigh bone. The thigh bone has two bony processes on the upper part - the greater and lesser trochanters.
Total Hip Replacement
Minimally Invasive Total Hip Replacement
Anterior Hip Replacement
Anterior hip replacement surgery is performed under general anesthesia or regional anesthesia. You will lie down on your back, on a special operating table that enables your surgeon to perform the surgery from the front of the hip. Your surgeon may use fluoroscopic imaging during the surgery to ensure theaccuracy of component positioning and to minimize leg length inequality.
Computer-assisted Hip Replacement
Computer-assisted hip replacement is an image-guided, minimally invasive surgical procedure to replace your diseased or damaged hip with an artificial device using the assistance of computer software. The system creates and displays images and provides information that aids your surgeon at various stages of the procedure to improve accuracy and results.
Computer-Navigated Total Hip Replacement
For a successful total hip replacement, accurate positioning of the implants is crucial to accomplish a good clinical outcome. Computer-navigated total hip replacement is an advanced technology developed to provide more accurate positioning of an implant. Hip replacement through computer navigation provides information and guidance to the surgeon for precise positioning of implants.
The hip is a ball-and-socket joint; the ball is formed by the head of the humerus (thighbone) and the socket by the pelvic bones. The joint is covered by ligaments that form a capsule around it. Tendons attached to muscles in the pelvis, thighs, and buttocks help move the hip joint.
Open Gluteus Medius Repair
Open gluteus medius repair is a surgical procedure employed for the treatment of gluteus medius tears. A gluteus medius tear or rupture is a condition characterized by a severe strain of the gluteus medius muscle that results in a partial or complete rupture of the muscle.
Mini-Posterior Hip Replacement
Mini-posterior hip replacement is a surgical procedure used to replace your damaged hip with synthetic parts inserted through a small incision made at the back of the hip. The surgery involves the replacement of portions of the pelvis and femur (thighbone) without disturbing the vital abductor muscles that are critical to hip stability and gait.
Revision Hip Surgery
Revision hip surgery is a repeat hip surgery performed in certain patients to correct the problems or complications of previous hip surgery and overcome its limitations. The hip joint is one of the body's largest weight-bearing joints and is the point where the thighbone (femur) and pelvis (acetabulum) join.
A femoroplasty is a surgical procedure employed for the treatment of cam impingement. Cam impingement is a form of hip impingement, also known as femoroacetabular impingement (FAI).
Ultrasound Guided Hip Injections
An ultrasound scan is an imaging procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Ultrasound-guided hip joint injections are used to diagnose the underlying cause and relieve hip pain. The injection consists of a special mixture of an anesthetic and a steroid that blocks pain impulses and reduces inflammation in the injected area.
Complex Hip Reconstruction Surgery
Complex hip reconstruction surgery is a surgical procedure employed to treat hip structures with complex hip fractures or traumatic hip injuries, deformities, structural issues, and damage from diseases such as arthritis. The main objective of complex hip reconstruction surgery is to alleviate hip pain and stiffness, improve range of motion, and restore normal functioning of the hip joint to help you resume your normal activities and improve your quality of life.
Femoroacetabular osteoplasty is the surgical reshaping of the protruding bony surface of the femur or acetabulum of the hip joint. FAO is performed arthroscopically as a minimally invasive procedure. An arthroscope is a small, fiber-optic instrument consisting of a lens, light source, and video camera.
Posterior Hip Replacement
Posterior hip replacement is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which the worn out or damaged surfaces of the hip joint are removed and replaced with artificial joint components made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. It is also referred to as muscle sparing surgery because key muscles and tendons are left intact while accessing the hip joint, enabling a quicker return to normal activity.
Robotic Total Hip Replacement
Robotic total hip replacement is a minimally invasive procedure where your surgeon is assisted by a robotic system to perform a total hip replacement surgery.
Hip Cartilage Repair
Hip cartilage is a white, tough, flexible tissue covering the ball (femoral head) and socket (acetabulum) of your hip joint. It acts as a cushion or shock-absorber and allows the bones to slide over one another by providing a smooth surface in the joint.
Femoral osteoplasty is the surgical alteration or reshaping of your femur (thigh bone). It is performed if you have an abnormally shaped femoral head or neck leading to a medical condition called femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), the most common cause of hip pain.
Outpatient Hip Replacement
Hip replacement surgery is one of the most common orthopedic surgeries performed. It involves the replacement of the damaged hip bone (ball shaped upper end of the femur) with a ceramic ball attached to a metal stem that is fixed into the femur and placing a new cup with a special liner in the pelvis. Traditionally, the surgery was performed with a large, open incision and required the patient to stay in the hospital for several days.
The hip joint is also known as a ball and socket joint, where the ball (femoral head) of the thigh bone fits into the socket (acetabulum) of the pelvic bone. Damage to the hip bones can be treated by hip resurfacing, which is a surgical procedure in which the damaged parts of the femoral head are trimmed, and the socket is removed and replaced with metal caps.
Proximal Hamstring Repair
Hamstring injuries primarily occur when the muscle is exposed to extreme strain; when it is stretched beyond its ability or when it must withstand a sudden load. This is commonly seen while sprinting – the hamstring muscles must bear the body’s entire weight and experience extreme contraction as you push off the ground to move forward.
Revision Hip Replacement
During total hip replacement, the damaged cartilage and bone are removed from the hip joint and replaced with artificial components. At times, hip replacement implants can wear out for various reasons and may need to be replaced with the help of a surgical procedure known as revision hip replacement surgery.
Proximal Femoral Osteotomy
Proximal femoral osteotomy is a surgical procedure that involves cutting and alignment of the upper (proximal) part of the thigh bone, also called the femur. The proximal femur is part of the femur that articulates with the socket of the hip bone, called the acetabulum. Proximal femoral osteotomy helps restore hip function.
Hip Trauma Reconstruction
Hip trauma is an injury in the hip due to the impact caused by incidents such as a car accident or a hard fall. The injury can be a bone break or dislocation or both. Hip trauma reconstruction is the process of rebuilding and restoring the hip joint.
Rapid Recovery Hip Replacement
Rapid recovery hip replacement is an innovative and minimally invasive surgical procedure to replace a damaged hip joint with a prosthesis. It is associated with minimal post-operative pain and discomfort and a shorter recovery time. The surgery can often be performed as an outpatient procedure.
Hip Cartilage Restoration
Hip cartilage restoration is a surgical technique to repair damaged articular cartilage in the hip joint by stimulating new growth of cartilage or by transplanting cartilage into areas with defects in order to relieve pain and restore normal function to the hip.
Robotic Assisted Hip Surgery
Robotic assisted hip surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves the use of a specialized robotic system to remove the damaged parts of a hip joint and replace them with an artificial prosthesis or implant.
Hip Labral Reconstruction
Hip labral reconstruction is a surgery that involves the use of a graft to replace the damaged portion of a hip labrum. The hip labrum is a ring of fibrous cartilaginous tissue that surrounds the socket of the hip joint. Injuries to the hip labrum are usually seen in athletes involved in high-impact sports such as ice hockey, soccer, and football. They can also occur due to traumatic injury or degenerative conditions.
Sports Hernia Repair
Sports hernia repair is a surgical procedure performed to treat a sports hernia, also known as athletic pubalgia. A sports hernia is a condition characterized by chronic pain due to any strain or damage to the soft tissues in the pelvic and groin region.
Robotic Anterior Total Hip Arthroplasty
Robotic anterior total hip arthroplasty is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves the use of a specialized robotic system to remove the damaged parts of a hip joint and replace them with an artificial prosthesis or implant from an anterior approach rather than a traditional total hip arthroplasty approach.
Hip implants are artificial devices that form the essential parts of the hip joint in a hip replacement surgery. The hip implants vary by size, shape, and material. Various components of a hip implant may be used for a hip replacement surgery. The components used may depend on the extent of damage to the hip joint, and the preference of your orthopedic surgeon.
