Hip problems are common. Hip pain due to arthritis, developmental problems or trauma can lead to increasing pain and a frustrating loss of mobility and freedom.
Patients of all ages may suffer hip pain, and in some cases surgical intervention may be indicated. Before deciding on the need for surgery Mr Ward will need to clinically assess you and take a detailed history of your problems. X-rays and sometimes a scan and blood tests may need to be arranged to determine the appropriate treatment. Most investigations can be performed at the time of the initial assessment, and often your referring GP will have arranged a pelvis Xray prior to referral.
