Expert hip replacement surgery
Replacing a worn or damaged hip joint with an artificial replacement is now a commonplace procedure, bringing relief from pain and restoring mobility in over 60,000 patients annually in the UK. A crucial factor in choosing a suitable surgeon to perform a hip replacement operation is their experience in the procedure, and Mr Banim carries out more than 100 each year with excellent results. Offering the full range of modern implants, including long-wearing ceramic-on-ceramic, he is able to advise on the most appropriate design and technique in each individual case.
Hip arthroscopy in Chester
Mr Banim was the first surgeon in Chester to perform hip arthroscopy, a form of keyhole surgery. The procedure involves inserting a fibre-optic probe called an arthroscope into the hip joint to view and assess the internal structures. Damage to the articular cartilage, labrum and soft tissues can be repaired using specially designed miniature instruments attached to an arthroscope. A number of other treatments can also be performed arthroscopically including removal of loose fragments of cartilage or bone from the joint, removal of overgrown or excess bone and reshaping of the ball and socket components of the hip.
