Why choose Oxford, The Manor Hospital for your hip arthroscopy?
Our Oxford Hospital is one of the most modern and technologically advanced private hospitals in the UK. Recently we have invested heavily in state-of-the-art technology scanners and equipment to support the wide range of specialist services we offer.
One area we have invested in is orthopaedics, (which includes bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves), and as a result we have upgraded our hospital to a centre of excellence. Our consultants and dedicated nurses take great pride in providing the highest standards of clinical care for our patients in a clean and comfortable hospital setting.
What happens during hip arthroscopy?
- At Nuffield Health Oxford, The Manor Hospital, a hip arthroscopy is often performed as a day case
- The procedure is normally performed under general anaesthetic, although a local anaesthetic can be used
- The operation takes between 30 and 90 minutes
- You will be put on to a traction table (a type of operating table), which pulls firmly on your leg
- This pulls your hip joint apart a little, so your surgeon can see into the joint
- They will insert a camera through one or more small cuts around your hip
- Other small incisions may be made to introduce instruments to remove fluid, diseased tissue or bone or to perform some procedures to the area
- The inside of the joint will be examined enabling your consultant to decide whether an operation is required to repair damage or remove loose material interfering with joint movement.
Going home after a hip arthroscopy
- You will not be able to drive yourself home so please arrange for someone to pick you up from our Oxford Hospital
- You should take it easy for a few days
- You may have a few small stitches on each wound, which should be left in place until your follow-up appointment at the hospital, around 10-14 days later
- Continue to take any pain relief medication as needed
- Discuss any return to work with your orthopaedic consultant.
Most people make a full recovery from hip arthroscopy surgery, however as with any surgical procedure there is a chance of complications including:
- Infection on the wound
- Difficulty passing urine
- Blood clots (deep vein thrombosis – DVT)
Specific complications of hip arthroscopy may include:
- Nerve damage
- Infection in the hip joint
- Tendon damage
- Localised stiffness or pain
Hips and knees are designed to last a lifetime but injury, accidents and osteoarthritis can leave your joints worn out and very painful. Our experts in nutrition, orthopaedics and exercise share their tips for looking after your joints.
