Osteoarthritis of the hip

Osteoarthritis of the hip - Centre for Joint Surgery and Sports Medicine - ZurichPD Dr. med. Andreas L. Oberholzer helps patients with osteo-arthritis of the hip at the Centre for Joint and Sport Surgery at the private Pyramide Klinik am See in Zurich to achieve rapid and pain-free walking thanks to a minimally invasive surgical technique.

Osteoarthritis is wear and tear of the joint cartilage, which every person is prone to with increasing age. If the osteoarthritis intensifies, certain points on the joint will no longer be covered with protective cartilage, which may lead to pain and the other consequences, such as an unsteady gait and restricted movement.


Symptoms of osteoarthritis of the hip 

Osteoarthritis can differ in intensity, depending on the person. The following symptoms, amongst others, can occur:

  • Load-induced pain (➞ limping gait)
  • Movement-induced pain
  • Start-up pain
  • Inflammatory pain
  • Deformation of the joint (➞ shortening of the leg ➞ pelvic misalignment ➞ backache)
  • Unsteady gait with a risk of falling
  • Restricted movement (e.g. difficulty putting on socks/stockings)
  • Muscle tension, muscle contractions and muscle weakness

Further information on osteoarthritis of the hip can be found on the website of the Centre for Joint and Sport Surgery at the private Pyramide Klinik am See in Zurich.


Hip replacement

The artifical hip joint surgical technique that protects the soft tissue is used with a very high degree of success and can increase quality of life significantly and quickly. As a rule, the stay at the clinic is only five days.

PD Dr. med. Andreas L. Oberholzer will be happy to advise you should you have osteoarthritis symptoms, and will provide a thorough examination and clarification, on the basis of which the appropriate treatment method (surgical or non-surgical) will be decided.
