World-class treatment for hip and pelvis conditions

Our state-of-the-art hip units bring the expertise of world-renowned surgeons, pioneering treatments and the most advanced technology under one roof. Here, we offer same-day diagnosis and a wide range of surgical and non-surgical hip treatments for people of all ages. 


Our patients range from professional athletes with sports injuries to patients suffering from arthritis of the hip joint. We specialise in hip joint-preservation and offer pioneering treatment options for active patients to restore function and prevent further degeneration of the hip joint. 


Our specialist hip surgeons offer a range of treatments, from arthroscopic keyhole surgery and complex hip resurfacing to 3D printed personalised hip replacements, and were among the first to offer robotic-assisted total hip replacement surgery in the UK. We’re also able to offer patients anterior minimally invasive surgery (AMIS) a type of hip replacement which spares the muscles in the hip, allowing for a rapid post-operative recovery and rehabilitation.


If your child experiences conditions such as developmental dysplasia of the hip or Perthes disease, our HCA UK specialist paediatric and adolescent consultants offer a range of treatment options for developmental hip conditions and young sporting hip injuries.


This expertise presents significant benefits to our patients – greater precision and accuracy, less tissue damage and post-operative pain and therefore quicker recovery times. This helps patients return to doing the things they love sooner.

  • Hip replacement surgery

    Need to know


  • Hip arthritis

    Need to know

    In hip arthritis the cartilage, which normally cushions the bones in your hip joint, become damaged. This prevents the smooth movement of your joint. Factors that can contribute to this condition include advancing age and being overweight. Sometimes hip arthritis can settle down on its own.

  • Hip impingement surgery

    Need to know

    Hip impingement or Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is caused by abnormally shaped bones rubbing together in your hip joint. It can affect people of all ages, limiting range of movement, causing pain and potentially leading to hip arthritis. A minimally invasive procedure can reshape these...

  • Hip dysplasia

    Need to know

    Most people with hip dysplasia are born with the condition. In hip dysplasia the socket of the hip is too shallow and the top of the thigh bone isn't held tightly in place, so the hip joint is loose. In severe cases, the thigh bone can dislocate (pop out of its socket).

  • Hip arthroscopy

    Need to know

    A hip arthroscopy procedure allows your consultant to see inside your hip joint using a small surgical camera (arthroscope) inserted through tiny cuts in your hip. An arthroscopy is used to diagnose and treat a range of hip problems — from cartilage damage, to labral tears and impingement and...

  • Anterior hip replacement

    Need to know

    Anterior minimally invasive muscle sparing surgery is the only hip replacement technique that follows both the intermuscular and internervous path to spare muscle and tissue damage. With this method, the surgeon makes a small cut at the front of the hip, allowing access to the hip joint without cutting...

  • Femoroacetabular impingement

    Need to know

    Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is where the hip ball (femoral head) doesn't quite fit the joint socket (acetabulum). This can cause pain when moving, and groin pain in particular. The condition affects young to middle-aged adults and can be caused by repeated hip movements. It's a common condition...

  • Lateral hip pain

    Need to know

    If you're experiencing pain or tenderness in the side of your hip, you may have trochanteric bursitis. It happens when the bursa (sac of fluid) in your hips becomes inflamed. It's more common in women, particularly those who are overweight and menopausal, or in those who have suddenly increased their...

  • Labral hip tear

    Need to know

    The labrum is the ring of cartilage surrounding the hip joint. Sporting activities, commonly those associated with impact, can tear the labrum. This often causes pain around the front of the hip and groin. We offer a number of treatments to help reduce the pain and treat the tear.

  • Hip resurfacing surgery

    Need to know

    This surgery is more commonly performed on younger patients. It can be an alternative to a total hip replacement if your leg and hip bones are generally good. It's also known as metal-on-metal hip resurfacing, where the surface of the ball-and-socket joint in the hip are replaced with a metal surface.

  • Hip revision surgery

    Need to know

    A hip replacement usually lasts 10 to 25 years. So, depending on your age when you have a replacement, there's a chance of needing additional surgery later in life.

  • Autologous cartilage-cell implantation

    Need to know

    Autologous cartilage-cell implantation provides pain relief and delays the need for partial or total knee replacement surgery. The aim of the implantation is to allow you to return to your old lifestyle; regaining mobility, returning to work and even playing sports again. It forms part of a clinical...

  • Fracture

    Need to know

    A fracture (or broken bone) refers to a loss in the continuity of a bone. They are normally caused by a high-force impact, stress (over a period of time) or as a result of another bone-weakening condition, such as osteogenesis imperfecta, osteoporosis or bone cancer. If you've suffered a bone fracture,...

  • Muscle strains and sprains

    Need to know

    Muscle strains and sprains can be a common consequence of playing sport or over exertion during activities. These may occur from physical contact or not warming your muscles up properly before playing. You will likely experience pain, swelling and tightness in the pain area. Your consultant can help...

  • Osteoarthritis

    Need to know

    Over the years, wear and tear affects cartilage in the joints, causing pain, weakness and stiffness. This is known as osteoarthritis (OA). It can affect any joint but is most common in the knees, hip, and spine. It is a degenerative condition and often starts in people over 50-years-old but can affect...

  • PRP injections

    Need to know

    Stem cells and platelets are naturally occurring substances found in blood, and they can be injected into the body to help promote the recovery of injured muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments. They are referred to as platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections. The substances are injected into injured tissue...

  • Tendon repair surgery

    Need to know

    Tendon injuries are relatively common and rarely serious, they can be torn, or ruptured. Your consultant may suggest surgery if other types of treatment, such as physiotherapy, haven't worked or if you've torn your tendon badly. Surgery can be carried out on any tendon but it's usually done on shoulders...

  • Groin pain

    Need to know

    Groin pains and strains are usually the result of sporting injuries or general wear and tear. In other cases, they could be a sign of something else, like a hip or hernia problem. If you're experiencing pain or discomfort, it's important to get it checked out. At HCA UK, we can diagnose the problem and...

  • Sacroiliac joint pain

    Need to know

    The sacroiliac joint or SI joint is the joint between the sacrum and the ilium bones of the pelvis linking the lower spine and the pelvis. When the sacroiliac joints at the base of your spine stop working properly, it can sometimes cause lower back and leg pain. The pain can present similar symptoms...

  • Hip and groin pain injuries in sport

    Need to know

    Sports men and women may experience groin area and pain in side of the hip.  Groin pain may be due to a problem in the hip joint, such as F.A.I. (femoroacetabular impingement), or early osteoarthritis. Sometimes the cause is an overload of tendons and muscles (such as the iliopsoas tendon or the...
