The hip joint is the link between the pelvis and the legs, it must support the weight of the body and its pathology is diverse, usually secondary to trauma: head fractures of the femur, pelvis, hip dislocations, etc .; but also chronic mechanical overload due to age or sports practice is a frequent cause of pathology: Femoro-acetabular impingement (CAM, PINZER), spring hip, labrum lesions, trochanteric bursitis, hip synovitis, fascia lata tendinitis or Maissat's band tendinitis, dislocations or dysplasias, avascular necrosis, hip osteoarthritis, etc.
The diagnostic tests commonly used are radiographs, ultrasound, CT and MRI, depending on the condition being studied.
The treatment of this pathology requires different types of surgical access as well as the use of hip arthroscopy as a minimally invasive treatment method. Sometimes depending on the pathology, the use of infiltrations (steroids, hyaluronic acid, platelet-rich plasma-PRP) is indicated, which allows us to heal some pathologies and sometimes improve pain in the recovery process.
