Hips

The most common cause of hip pain is arthritis; osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Normally a doctor would recommend a course of pain relief before considering whether surgery is necessary. 

They will consider the quality of the life you lead. When simple everyday tasks become difficult and painful, it may be necessary to think about hip surgery to replace your hip joint, which is called an arthroplasty. Sometimes, hip replacements become loose and need to be re-fitted.  This is called a revision.

Hip surgery takes place at our York and Bridlington sites. If you require urgent surgery to your hip joint following a fall or an accident, this would be undertaken in our trauma centres at York and Scarborough.
