Hip Pain and Discomfort
Most cases of hip pain in adults that are treated with surgery are caused by osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis in the UK. Less common causes include impingement, cartilage tear, dysplasia, fracture, infection and bursistis. While hip pain can often improve on its own, medical attention should be sought after injury or when the pain doesn’t lessen after a week or more.

Avascular Necrosis
Avascular necrosis is the death of bone tissue due to a lack of blood supply. Also called osteonecrosis, avascular necrosis can lead to tiny breaks in the bone and the bone’s eventual collapse. In the hip the femoral head is affected and the predominant symptom of hip AVN is pain, which is usually located in the groin. Often the pain is worse at night.

Labral Tear of the Hip Joint
A labral tear of the hip joint is a tear to the cartilage lining of the hip joint called the acetabulum which acts as cushioning for the joint.

Symptoms of a labral tear include pain in the hip or groin. A clicking or locking of the joint can occur. Stiffness and restricted mobility in the hip joint is likely. Symptoms may come on suddenly following an impact or trauma but can also develop gradually if the joint progressively degenerates.
