  • Revision Total Hip Replacement surgery
  • Bone grafting and Reconstruction surgery
  • Consequences of hip fracture
  • Consequences of childhood hip disorders e.g. CDH, dysplasia, SUFE
  • Impingement syndromes of the hip
  • Sporting disorders and muscle problems
  • Evaluation of problematic Hip Replacements

I perform over 100 hip surgeries a year, predominantly primary and revision total hip replacements.

Normal Anatomy of the Hip Joint

How does the Hip joint work? Find out more in this web based movie.

Femoro Acetabular Impingement

Femoroacetabular Impingement FAI is a condition resulting from abnormal pressure and friction between the ball and socket of the hip joint resulting in pain and progressive hip dysfunction. This when left untreated leads to the development of secondary osteoarthritis of the hip.

Total Hip Replacement

Revision Hip Replacement

This maybe because part or all of your previous hip replacement needs to be revised. This operation varies from very minor adjustments to massive operations replacing significant amounts of bone and hence is difficult to describe in full.
