Hip Injection

Conservative treatments – Hip Injection.

Patients with early arthritis may be suitable for hyaluronic acid injections (Durolane). This can be useful if giving temporary pain relief and is a easy procedure to perform as a daycase under local anaesthetic. This can be repeated if necessary. This material lubricates the joint and commonly gives good pain relief in a selection of patients with minimal risk. This will give relief of symptoms for up to 6 months.

This is performed under x-ray control with full sterile conditions.
