The second largest joint in the human body is in a category of its own for one main reason: quality of life can be greatly reduced by diseases in this area. Hip pain can increasingly restrict mobility, causing patients to move unnatural ways, which often triggers further orthopaedic problems.

Incidentally, hip diseases are not necessarily a symptom of old age. On the contrary, early diagnosis can slow down excessive wear and any subsequent damage or prevent this entirely. For this reason, it is advisable to seek help for any pain caused by strain, for the sensation of any foreign bodies or difficulty making certain movements even from a younger age.

On this page you will find an overview of the most common hip problems and some examples of how these can be treated. Aside from artificial joint replacements, all operations are carried out via an arthroscopic procedure. ORTHOmedic is specialised in this minimally invasive procedure. Your expert for hip diseases here at ORTHOmedic is Professor Schofer.

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)

Hip impingement syndrome occurs when the femoral head and socket do not fit together properly. Protruding bones cause tendons and soft tissues to become trapped. Pain often occurs when sitting or bending, for example during a long car journey, during sport or when tying laces. Symptoms are often mistaken for symptoms of a hernia, urinary tract or abdominal disease. Hip impingement can be cured by removing the protruding bone by means of an arthroscopy.
