Hip Surgery

Dr Lévy is a specialist in hip surgery. He performs hip replacements not only for osteoarthritis but for femoral neck fractures too. He also treats osteonecrosis of the hip. Finally, he provides revision hip replacements (to repair a previous implant).

Osteoarthritis of the hip is a degenerative condition that affects the hip joint. It causes increasing degrees of hip pain, which gradually reduces the distance a person can walk. It becomes harder to move the hip, causing sufferers to lose their independence. There are many treatments to slow down this condition (e.g. injections, viscosupplementation). A total hip replacement is the last resort and involves surgery to replace the joint with a prosthetic hip in order to alleviate the pain and restore the patient’s independence.
