Hip surgery is performed by orthopaedic surgeons, many of whom specialise in hip and lower limb surgery. One of the conditions most commonly treated by hip surgeons is arthritis of the hip, and a number of highly effective surgical options are available depending on the age and circumstances of the patient. These include total replacement of the hip joint, revision hip replacement and hip resurfacing, a bone conserving procedure best suited to younger patients.
