Hip conditions and treatments


 

Vale Hospital

Specialist Hip MOT clinic in Cardiff

The specialist Hip MOT clinic, is led by Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon Mr Alun John, is for patients that have already had a hip replacement.


But follow up appointments vary. Because a prosthetic hip will start to degrade after 5-10 years, the advice from the British Orthopaedic Association is to have X-rays after 5 years and at intervals thereafter.

Baby Hip clinic

The Baby Hip Clinic, run by Mr Phill Thomas and Mr Sandeep Hemmadi, provides an ultrasound screening service for babies at risk of Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip. This condition affects a significant number of children in the UK and, if the condition is not identified, then the child will have an increased risk of lifelong hip problems.

 

Hip ultrasound is a compulsory test for all babies in most European countries, although not currently in the UK.

 

Risk factors include:


  • Family history – any relative/sibling who has had a previous childhood hip problem
  • Breech position of the child during pregnancy
  • Oligohydramnios (low level of fluid in the womb during pregnancy)
  • Foot abnormalities at birth
  • First born, female sex
