Injuries and Conditions That May Require Hip Surgery

Sometimes an injury can occur, or a condition can develop, that severely affects the hip and can cause pain, inflammation, stiffness, or difficulty with movement. When this occurs, surgical repair might be the only way to relieve the discomfort and allow for easier range of motion.

A few common injuries and conditions that may lead to a hip surgery prognosis include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Fractures / breaks
  • Dislocation
  • Torn ligaments
  • Hip bursitis
  • Hip tendinitis
  • Osteonecrosis
  • Bone tumor
  • Dysplasia
  • Sciatic nerve compression
  • Synovitis
  • Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)

It is important to note that not all injuries and conditions listed will require surgical intervention, and there are additional reasons why a surgeon may recommend a surgical procedure to a patient. To receive a diagnosis and treatment plan for your specific condition, contact our Shannon orthopedic specialists.

What Is the Most Common Hip Surgery?

At Shannon, our orthopedic surgeons only utilize the highest quality equipment and treatment methods for repairing and reliving hip conditions. For specialized orthopedic services and medical imaging in San Angelo, Shannon has you covered. Your physician will use state-of-the-art technology to determine a precise diagnosis and design a personalized care plan for you.

If surgery is deemed necessary based on the state of your hip, your physician may recommend one of the following procedures:

Total Hip Replacement

The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery recently discovered that around 7 million Americans were living with either a knee or hip replacement, making it one of the most common hip surgeries performed throughout the United States.

Nevertheless, a total hip replacement is only performed when there is severe damage to the hip, usually from a degenerative disease such as arthritis. With a total hip replacement, artificial implants will be inserted into the affected hip to promote easier movement within the joint.

Hip Joint Reconstruction

When the hip becomes damaged enough to necessitate surgical intervention but isn’t severe enough to justify a total hip replacement, your orthopedic surgeon may recommend a hip joint reconstruction procedure. This operation works to repair the damaged area, as opposed to artificially replacing it.

Ligament Reconstruction

Similar to hip joint reconstruction, your orthopedic surgeon may recommend a ligament reconstruction procedure if the ligaments have been damaged in some way but can still be repaired to salvage function.

Arthroscopic Repair of the Hip

With arthroscopic procedures, a surgeon will insert a tiny camera into the joint in order to detect issues and precisely repair or clean out any damaged tissue. Hip arthroscopy is minimally invasive, as only small incisions are needed for scope insertion, making recovery time much quicker than other more invasive procedures.

As mentioned by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, hip arthroscopy can be used to treat FAI, ligament tears, dysplasia, synovitis, sciatic nerve compression, and more.
