  • Limping
  • Stiffness in the hip joint

 


Causes of Trochanteric Bursitis

The piriformis tendon and sciatic nerve cross each other behind the hip joint, in the deep buttock.


Symptoms of Piriformis Syndrome

  • Pain that radiate down the back of the leg
  • Sore buttock when sitted down

 


Causes of Piriformis Syndrome

  • Irritation of the sciatic nerve
  • Injured due to fall on the buttock

Avascular Necrosis

What is Avascular Necrosis?

Bones are living tissue which they rely on blood vessels to bring blood to keep them alive. If one blood vessel is damaged it may not cause problems, since there may be a backup blood supply coming in from a different direction. But certain joints of the body have only a few blood vessels that bring in blood. One of these joints is the hip. When the blood supply is damaged, it is called Avascular Necrosis (AVN) of the hip. Another name for this condition is Osteonecrosis.


Symptoms of Avascular Necrosis

  • Pain felt in groin area, buttock area and down the front of the thigh
  • Limping
  • Stiffness in the hip joint

 


Causes of Avascular Necrosis

  • Fractures of the femoral neck
  • Dislocation of the hip out of the socket
  • Smoking

Total Hip Replacement

Total Hip Replacement

total-hip-replacement

What is Total Hip Replacement?

A Total Hip Replacement is a surgical procedure whereby the cartilage and bone of the hip joint is surgically replaced with artificial materials. The normal hip joint is a ball and socket joint. The socket is a “cup-shaped” bone of the pelvis called the acetabulum. The ball is the head of the thigh bone. Total hip joint replacement involves surgical removal of the ball and socket and replacing them with a metal ball and stem inserted into the femur bone and an artificial plastic cup socket.


Common Causes of Hip Pain and Loss of Hip Function

  • Osteoarthritis usually occurs in people 50 years of age and older and often with a family history of arthritis. The cartilage that cushions the bones of the knee softens and wears away due to wear and tear. The bones then rub against one another, causing knee pain and stiffness.

 

  • Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease in which the synovial membrane becomes thickened and inflamed, producing too much synovial fluid that overfills the joint space. This inflammation can damage the cartilage and eventually cause cartilage loss, pain, and stiffness.

 

  • Traumatic arthritis can follow a serious knee injury. A knee fracture or severe tears of the knee ligaments may damage the articular cartilage over time, causing knee pain and limiting knee function.

 


Is Total Hip Replacement for you?

You may benefit from hip replacement surgery if:

  • Hip pain limits your everyday activities such as walking or bending
  • Hip pain continues while resting, either day or night
  • Stiffness in a hip limits your ability to move or lift your leg
  • You have little pain relief from anti-inflammatory drugs
  • You have harmful or unpleasant side effects from your hip medications
  • Other treatments such as physical therapy do not relieve hip pain

 


Sign and Symptoms of Blood Clot

  • Pain in your calf and leg
  • Tenderness on your calf
  • Swelling of your thigh, calf, ankle, or foot

When there is blood cot in the lungs:
