Consultant Hip Surgeon, Wrexham and North Wales: Muthu Ganapathi

A specialist hip surgeon in North Wales offering expert assessment and treatment of hip pain using the latest techniques, including hip arthroscopy, minimally invasive surgery and computer guided surgery.

A highly experienced hip surgeon in North Wales

Mr Ganapathi is a fellowship-trained lower limb specialist and expert in hip replacement surgery, hip impingement surgery and hip arthroscopy.  Actively involved in teaching and research, he works at the forefront of developments in hip surgery to provide his patients with the least invasive and most up-to-date solutions for hip pain possible.  Mr Ganapathi is also a keen advocate of accelerated rehabilitation, combining minimally invasive surgical techniques with early physiotherapy and multi-modal pain control to facilitate an early discharge from hospital and rapid return to normal function.

Hip conditions treated by Mr Muthu Ganapathi

Mr Ganapathi offers expert assessment and treatment for a range of hip problems, including:

  • Hip and groin pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Hip impingement syndrome
  • Avascular necrosis
  • Perthe's disease
  • Hip trauma
  • Hip abductor tear
  • Sports injuries

Minimally invasive total hip replacement in North Wales

Traditional total hip replacement surgery is performed through a large incision 20-25cm long.  More recently there has been a move towards smaller incisions, including some less than 10cm long.  Although associated with definite benefits in terms of less tissue damage, shorter operating times and quicker recovery, these newer techniques can be problematic in terms of providing adequate exposure of the area for the surgeon to perform the procedure effectively.   

Mr Ganapathi offers a modified and refined minimally invasive technique, using special instruments to perform the majority of hip replacements through an incision approximately 7cm long.  Exposure is not compromised in any way and the patient still experiences the benefits associated with less soft tissue dissection.

Expert diagnosis and treatment of hip problems in younger patients

Hip arthroscopy involves the insertion of a fibre-optic tube into the hip joint to diagnose and treat hip problems.  Although now a common procedure for the knee, hip arthroscopy is a more specialised and still developing procedure that is helping to expand knowledge of the causes of hip and groin pain, particularly in young people. 

Recently recognised hip problems in younger patients include hip impingement syndrome (also known as femoroacetabular impingement, FAI), labral tear, and abductor tear of the hip.  As one of a few surgeons in Wales offering hip arthroscopy, Mr Ganapathi is experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of these novel conditions.
