Expert assessment and treatment of hip arthritis
The bones of the hip joint are covered with a smooth,
firm, rubbery material called cartilage that reduces friction in the
joint and acts as a 'shock absorber'. Over time, this material can
become damaged and worn, as a result of everyday wear and tear, injury
or disease. The breakdown of healthy cartilage allows the bone surfaces
to rub against each other causing the pain, swelling and inflammation
associated with arthritis.
Mr Auld is highly experienced in the assessment of
arthritic hip symptoms, offering a range of treatments depending on the
severity of the condition. Non-surgical options include painkillers and
other medications, lifestyle changes and cortisone injections into the
hip. If the joint is very damaged or conservative therapies fail to
make a difference, he may feel that replacement of all or part of the
hip joint with an artificial implant is the best course of action.
