Hip surgery and treatments available for patients in the London area
Mr Gerber provides the full range of treatments and operations for patients who are experiencing hip pain:
Computer navigated hip replacement surgery using small skin cuts
For hip replacement surgery, it's important that the new hip joint is positioned as accurately as possible to maximise the functionality of the hip joint after the operation. If the joint is not correctly positioned, dislocation can occur at a later stage and the joint can wear out more quickly. Computer assisted hip replacement uses the latest imaging technology to guide the positioning of the new joint.
Hip resurfacing, short stem hip replacement, and hip revision surgery with bone stock reconstruction
Hip resurfacing minimizes the risk of dislocation and makes it easier to undertake a revision of the hip replacement if this is required. This successful, bone conserving total hip system is well documented through independent clinical and laboratory studies.
The development of hip implants with a relatively short stem has been driven by the desire to preserve bone in hip arthroplasty. They may be more suitable for younger patients requiring a hip replacement.
Femoro-acetabular impingement surgery
Femoro-acetabular impingement (FA) occurs when the bones of your hip joint come too close together and pinch tissue or cause too much friction. It is common in high level athletes, but also occurs in active individuals. Surgery for FAI can be performed using hip arthroscopy or open surgery.
