Hip and Complex trauma surgery

Our doctors utilize a wide array of treatments and have immense experience in hip joint replacement and reconstructive surgeries, poly-trauma and complex lower and upper limb peri-articular fractures. We work with each patient to develop a focused and individualized treatment plan so as to relieve the pain and improve the mobility, thereby allowing patients to return to an active life.

1. Hip Surgeries

a) Hip Replacement Surgeries

Treatment of Hip joint problems has come a long way. Advent of low friction arthroplasty revolutionized the treatment of arthritis of hip joint. With better understanding of the biomechanics, tribology and different bearings of the hip joint, the results of hip joint replacement have become excellent even in young patients.

b) Hip Preservation Surgeries

With better techniques and understanding of hip joint mechanics there is revival of hip joint preservation and reconstructive procedures. In absence of severe degenerative changes in young active patients, hip joint problems are increasingly managed with joint preserving operations with a goal of improving function with native hip joint and preserving the bone stock in long term.

At Kamineni, we are providing hip replacement and preservation surgeries for both adult and young patients.
