HIP surgery Who is hip surgery recommended for? Pain in your hip may affect your ability to move freely, it may give rise to pain and it may significantly change your lifestyle, daily routine, your hobbies, or even cut back your working capacity. As the population of the world is aging, more and more people face this problem. In the last 30 years artificial hip replacement has improved greatly. In Hungary there are 700-800 hip surgeries a year.
Who can avoid surgery? If your hip is slightly or moderately damaged or ill (starting phase of arthritis) you might avoid surgery with the following preventive methods:

  • on a short term: using painkillers, medicines against inflammation, use of local injections, physiotherapy, spa treatments,
  • on a long term: lifestyle change, weight control, more physical activity, regular physiotherapy and exercises

What is the aim of the surgery? The most important aim of the surgery is stopping the painful rubbing of the bones on each other.
