The labrum of the hip is a lip of thick cartilage that runs around the edge of the hip socket. When a labral tear of the hip occurs, the torn tissue can become pinched in the joint causing pain and catching sensations. Labral tears can occur from acute injuries such as sport or as a chronic problem due to impingement of the hip.
Impingement of the hip is when the shape of the hip bones causes repetitive injury to the labrum and the cartilage lining the joint. This results in hip pain and may be one of the factors that lead to arthritis. Treatment involved reshaping of the bones inside the hip. Sometimes cartilage within the hip is also affected and this can be treated at the same time.
Hip Replacement Surgery is a surgical procedure in which the damaged or worn parts of the hip joint are replaced with new artificial parts. Nowadays Hip Replacement Surgery has become a commonplace procedure. The prosthesis (artificial hip) used in modern Hip Replacement Surgery is extremely durable and can expected to last over 30 years. Hip Replacement Surgery will improve mobility, relieve pain and improve function of the hip joint thus improving your quality of life.
