Hip pain is not always immediately triggered by osteoarthritis, although this is a very common cause. For example, hip impingement can occur if the femoral head and socket do not fit together properly.
Hip pain is not always caused by the joint itself but rather the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments), for example resulting from muscular problems due to poor posture.
There are therefore various reasons for hip pain and each has its own set of symptoms. A comprehensive physical examination will determine the specific causes of your hip pain, and if necessary an X-ray, MRI or CT imaging will be carried out.
Many hip problems can be treated conservatively, in other words without surgery. In the course of a personal consultation we will explain the various treatment options to you and work with you to find an individual treatment solution.
Should an operation be necessary, the latest minimally invasive techniques and only the highest quality materials will be used. Certain interventions are also possible arthroscopically ("keyhole surgery").
