Hip conditions treated by Mr Sanat Shah

Mr Shah is able to provide surgery for all conditions affecting the hip, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Hip fracture
  • Avascular necrosis
  • Hip dysplasia

Hip resurfacing: bone conserving hip surgery

Mr Sanat is an expert in hip resurfacing, an alternative to total hip replacement for younger patients with active lifestyles.  The head of the femur (the ball part of the joint) is reshaped and covered with a durable, low-wearing metal sphere, and the socket part of the joint is fitted with a corresponding metal cup.  Compared to total hip replacement, hip resurfacing allows a better range of movement, retains the natural size and shape of the hip, and has better stability and a lower risk of dislocation.  It is suitable for men under 65 or women under 55 who have strong, healthy bones.

Hip resurfacing can relieve the symptoms of arthritis, whilst retaining a high level of mobility for many years.  The bone conserving nature of the surgery, leaving the head and neck of the femur intact, make future procedures to replace the implant straightforward, be it more resurfacing or a total hip replacement, thus extending the options available to younger people with arthritic hips.
