Our patients' experience

Endoscopy and arthroscopy of the hip

The hip is one of the joints in the human body that suffers the most in advanced ages. In many cases, hip injuries are caused by the wear and tear of bones and cartilage.

Prof. Dr. Elgeadi and his team are specialists in the treatment of hip pathologies. Thanks to innovative techniques, such as arthroscopy and endoscopy, they allow a rapid recovery and an improvement in the patient's quality of life.

Resolving doubts…

The hip is one of the parts of the human body that suffers the most fractures and breaks over the years. It is common that in elderly patients, the wear of bones and cartilage causes a hip break. In many cases, the break occurs due to the patient's instability, and in others, due to trauma in cases where the bones show weakness.

Depending on the characteristics of the break, different types of fracture can be differentiated.

The femoral head fracture, is that which occurs in the head of the femur, which occurs in patients over 50 years of age and is treated by osteosynthesis, that is, the bones are joined with screws.

The femoral neck fractures, affect the neck of the femur. The most common causes are severe trauma, and are usually treated by osteosynthesis or with implantation of a hip prosthesis.

Intertrochanteric fractures

They are located in the greater and lesser trochanter, and are common in elderly people.

Subtrochanteric fractures

On the other hand, subtrochanteric fractures can be differentiated, which are the least common and can be treated through open surgery, with the placement of plates and screws, or by implanting intramedullary nails through minimally invasive surgery.

Femoroacetabular impingement

This pathology arises from a excess friction in movements made by the hip, in which the pelvic bone, also known as the acetabulum, constantly rubs against the head of the femur.

Prof. Dr. Elgeadi's team has traumatologists specialized in endoscopy and hip arthroscopy, who will be able to help the patient recover their quality of life.

A hip endoscopy is a minimally invasive technique, which allows treating injuries and pathologies of the joint while minimizing the effects on the patient.

He hip specialist traumatologist Minimal incisions are made in the patient's skin, through which the endoscope is introduced, from which the lesion can be located and observed in detail. In addition, the surgical instruments necessary for the treatment of the pathology will be introduced.

Recovery is quick and the patient is discharged once the effects of the anesthesia end.

The endoscopic hip surgery is divided into two phases. In the first phase, general anesthesia is applied and incisions are made in the patient's skin, through which the necessary surgical material will later be introduced.

The second phase is longer, in which the endoscope is introduced and the pathology to be treated is observed. The necessary material is introduced through the endoscope and, through a high-resolution camera, the hip traumatologist will perform the operation.

The recovery after hip endoscopy It is faster and less painful for the patient than after open surgery. 

As these are minimal incisions, there is less risk of infection and the patient will regain mobility more quickly. In addition, the risk of bleeding is also lower.

The patient will be discharged once the effects of the anesthesia have ceased. After 24 hours you can begin to support your leg. In this type of operations, it is usually necessary to carry out rehabilitation to help regain mobility and strengthen the hip joint.

The Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique, which allows the approach for the treatment or study of hip pathologies through millimeter incisions in the skin.

Through the aforementioned incisions, the necessary material is introduced to address the injury and apply the most appropriate treatment, which allows the patient to recover the natural mobility of the joint, as well as their quality of life.

The most innovative thing about this surgery technique is that it allows you to observe the inside of the joint without performing conventional open surgery. This makes the hip arthroscopy is a non-invasive technique capable of offering very positive results in a short recovery period.

He Estimated time for hip arthroscopy operation It is approximately 90 minutes, depending on several factors such as the type of injury or the treatment applied.

This minimally invasive technique allows treating the following hip injuries and pathologies

  • Hip pain
  • Labrum tear
  • Femoroacetabular impingement
  • Removal of intra-articular loose bodies
  • Hip deformities
  • cartilage injuries
  • Chondrocyte Application
  • hip arthritis

He recovery time after undergoing hip arthroscopy It is quite fast, since it is a minimally invasive operation, complications are almost nil and the technique is not aggressive.

Another very important factor is the experience of the specialist traumatologist who carries out the operation.

Femoroacetabular impingement is a hip pathology in which there is an alteration in the contact between the thigh bone (femur) and the acetabulum of the pelvis, which can cause pain and limitation in movement.

This condition is characterized by the presence of symptoms such as pain in the groin, hip or buttocks, stiffness, clicking or a feeling of locking in the hip joint.

Femoroacetabular impingement can present in different forms, such as cam, pincer or mixed type.

Treatment for this condition can vary and include options such as physical therapy, modifications in physical activity and daily routine, the use of medications to control pain and inflammation, as well as consideration of surgery in more severe cases. with the aim of correcting anatomical alterations and relieving symptoms.

Hip osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that affects the articular cartilage of the hip, causing pain, inflammation and limitation of movement.

This condition can manifest with symptoms such as deep hip pain, stiffness, difficulty walking or climbing stairs, and a decrease in quality of life.

Hip osteoarthritis can have different causes, such as natural wear and tear due to aging, previous injuries or genetic factors.

Treatment for hip osteoarthritis may involve lifestyle changes, such as losing weight and adopting a healthy diet, practicing adequate physical exercise to strengthen the muscles that support the hip joint, using medications to control pain and inflammation, and in more severe cases, consideration of hip replacement surgery to improve function and relieve pain.

Trochanteric bursitis is inflammation of the bursa located on the outside of the hip, near the greater trochanter of the femur.

This condition can cause pain on the side of the hip and difficulty sleeping on your side. Common symptoms of trochanteric bursitis include stabbing pain in the hip, tenderness to touch, difficulty walking or climbing stairs, and may worsen when lying on the affected side.

Treatment for this condition may include rest, application of hot or cold compresses, anti-inflammatory medications to reduce inflammation and pain, physical therapy to strengthen the muscles surrounding the hip joint and improve its stability, as well as consideration of infiltrations of corticosteroids to relieve inflammation and pain in more severe cases.

Snapping hip is a condition in which there is an entrapment or blocking of the soft tissues around the hip joint, causing pain and a "spring" sensation when moving the leg.

Common symptoms of snapping hip include pain in the front or side of the hip, a catching or clicking sensation when flexing or extending the hip, and stiffness in the joint.

Treatment for this condition may include physical therapy to strengthen the muscles around the hip and improve joint stability, modifications in physical activity and movements that trigger symptoms.

In more severe cases, surgery is considered to release trapped tissues and relieve symptoms.

Pubalgia, also known as symphysis pubis pain, is a condition that causes pain in the groin region and lower abdomen, especially during physical activities such as running, jumping, or changing direction.

Common symptoms of pubalgia include pain in the groin that radiates to the genitals, weakness in the abdominal and hip adductor muscles, and difficulty performing physical activities.

Treatment for this condition may include rest to allow affected tissues to recover, physical therapy to strengthen the abdominal and hip muscles, the use of medications to control pain and inflammation, and in more severe cases, consideration of surgery to repair damaged tissues.

Osteonecrosis of the hip is a condition in which there is a lack of blood flow to the bone in the head of the femur, resulting in the death of bone tissue and collapse of the joint.

Common symptoms of osteonecrosis of the hip include deep hip pain, stiffness, difficulty walking, and limitation of movement.

This condition can be caused by trauma, long-term steroid use, excessive alcohol consumption, or diseases such as lupus or Gaucher disease.

Treatment for osteonecrosis of the hip may include physical therapy to improve mobility and strengthen the muscles that support the joint, the use of pain control medications, limiting weight bearing, and consideration of surgery in more cases. advanced to replace the hip joint and restore its function.

The intervention is performed using general or epidural anesthesia, first performing leg traction through which the tension is reduced to a maximum.

He specialist trauma doctor A small incision will be made through which the arthroscope, a camera that allows you to view the hip joint completely. In addition, several millimeter incisions will be made for the surgical procedure.

The right time to make a arthroplasty or hip replacement It will be when the pain in the patient's hip is unbearable, and the physical therapy methods or medications used previously have not helped.

Normally hip fractures are attempted to be repaired, but there are certain fractures located at the upper end of the femur which make it necessary to apply a hip prosthesis to the patient, since there may be a lack of irrigation in the area.

Types of hip prosthesis

Our team of hip fracture specialists A complete medical study will be carried out on the patient to apply the most appropriate prosthesis.

Total hip prosthesis

Also known as "total hip arthroplasty." This method consists of removing damaged bone and cartilage, replacing them with normally metal components that fulfill the same function. It is usually applied in cases of joint osteoarthritis.

Partial hip prosthesis

In this case, the femoral head articulates against the pelvis directly. Unlike the total procedure, only the femoral head is replaced, leaving the cavity of the pelvic acetabulum intact.

This type of surgery is used in cases of fractures in people with little physical activity.

Hip revision prosthesis

This hip operation is performed to replace another prosthesis that is causing complications, and may be partial or total.
