Sometimes called "wear-and-tear" arthritis, osteoarthritis is a common condition that many people develop after their fifties. In 2011, more than 28 million people in the United States were estimated to have osteoarthritis. It can occur in any joint in the body, but most often develops in weight-bearing joints, such as the hip. Osteoarthritis of the hip causes pain and stiffness. It can make it hard to do everyday activities like bending over to tie a shoe, rising from a chair, or taking a short walk. Because osteoarthritis gradually worsens over time, the sooner you start treatment, the more likely it is that you can lessen its impact on your life. Although there is no cure for osteoarthritis, there are many treatment options to help you manage pain and stay active. If hip surgery is recommended for your hip pain in Hartford
, Dr. Dua will perform the procedure using arthroscopic techniques, getting you back to your active life style much faster.
Based upon the condition of your hip joint, you and your doctor have several options from which to choose for hip surgery. An osteotomy is a procedure where either the head of the thighbone or the socket is cut and realigned to take pressure off of the hip joint. This procedure is used only rarely to treat osteoarthritis of the hip. For total hip replacement, your doctor will remove both the damaged acetabulum and femoral head, and then position new metal, plastic or ceramic joint surfaces to restore the function of your hip.
