Normal Anatomy of the Hip joint
The thigh bone, femur, and the pelvis, acetabulum, join to form the hip joint. The hip joint is a “ball and socket” joint. The “ball” is the head of the femur, or thigh bone, and the “socket” is the cup shaped acetabulum.

Femoro Acetabular Impingement (FAI)
Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition where there is too much friction in the hip joint from bony irregularities causing pain and decreased range of hip motion. The femoral head and acetabulum rub against each other creating damage and pain to the hip joint.

The hip joint is a “ball and socket” joint. The “ball” is the head of the femur, or thigh bone, and the “socket” is the cup shaped acetabulum. The joint surface is covered by a smooth articular surface that allows pain free movement in the joint.

Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that gives a clear view of the inside of a joint. During hip arthroscopy, Dr. Xenos inserts a small camera (arthroscope) into your hip joint. The camera displays pictures on a monitor and this allows visualization of the hip and use of small surgical instruments.

Total Hip Replacement(THR)
Total hip replacement (hip arthroplasty) is a common surgery. It is most often done in a patient with osteoarthritis although can be done for trauma or other conditions.
The hip is a ball (femoral head) and socket (acetabulum) joint. In a healthy joint, cartilage covers these and the hip glides through motions easily. In addition there is a fibrous labrum forming a rim along the acetabulum. Joint (synovial) fluid lubricates the joint. A capsule made up of ligaments surrounds the joint.

Revision Hip Replacement
Revision hip replacement is a complex surgical procedure in which all or part of a previously implanted hip-joint is replaced with a new artificial hip-joint. Total hip replacement surgery is an option to relieve severe arthritis pain that limits your daily activities.
