Hip surgery may be needed when non-surgical treatment no longer works. This is usually for degenerative conditions but can be needed for acute injuries and accidents too. The most common treatment is hip replacement which is one of the most successful operations available.
Knee surgery may be needed after an accident where the knee is injured or for pain and loss of function associated with cartilage wear. Options include arthroscopic (key hole) surgery and knee replacement procedures.
