Total Hip Replacement
The goal of hip replacement surgery is to relieve pain and to improve function and stability. Hip surgery is commonly performed for reasons such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis, trauma or problems from birth.
This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which an examination and treatment of a joint is performed using an arthroscope. During the arthroscopy, the surgeon examines and repairs your injured or diseased joint with the help of an optical instrument called an arthroscope. An arthroscope is a thin fiber-optic scope which is about the diameter of a drinking straw. It is fitted with a miniature camera and light source. Other tools used are shavers, lasers, and a type of biting tool.
Gluteus Medius Repair
The gluteus medius is a muscle located on the outer side of the hip, which is critical for abduction, which is a lateral movement going away from your body. It supports movement such as squatting, getting out of a car, or climbing a set of stairs.
A torn gluteus medius may can persistent pain that seems to mimic trochanteric bursitis. When physical therapy and injections into the trochanteric bursa do not provide any relief, a torn gluteus medius can be expected.
