Hip osteoarthritis

Specialty of Orthopaedic Surgery

Hip osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease of the cartilage that lines the union of the bones of the pelvis and femur. This fabric easy movement between the bones and prevents them from rubbing. When the cartilage thickness and texture decreases or disappears, the proper meshing between the femur and the pelvis is lost, resulting in hip osteoarthritis. The main indicator of this pathology is pain, which is mainly located in the region of the groin. Hip osteoarthritis is a chronic disease ( lifelong ) and, generally, tends to progress very slowly over the years. Treatment includes rehabilitation exercises, but in the most severe cases can opt for a surgical operation.
