You may already have a hip replacement. This may have been done a long time ago or fairly recently. In the long term, hip replacements can wear out. This can cause pain, leg shortening or dislocation. I am happy to discuss these with you and offer advice and treatment if needed.
You may have a hip resurfacing and have problems with this. You may have seen media coverage surrounding 'metal on metal' implants recently and be worried about your implant. I can reassure you by saying that most people with this type of implant are doing well. However, there are a significant proportion of people with metal on metal resurfacing that have had some problems. If you are worried about your resurfacing, please contact us for an appointment.
