Hip arthroplasty

The artificial hip joint

Wear and tear of the hip joint (coxarthrosis) increasingly limits the quality of life of those affected.
If increasing pain and restricted movement make the implantation of an artificial joint unavoidable, our experienced specialists offer modern and advanced hip surgery.
State-of-the-art surgical techniques and prosthesis types, such as minimally invasive surgical techniques using modern cementless short-shaft prostheses, ensure high-quality care for our patients with a shortened rehabilitation phase and optimal surgical results and regained quality of life.

When does a hip prosthesis have to be inserted?
In the case of persistent pain on movement, night pain, significantly limited walking distance, regular use of painkillers and increase in pain of neighboring joints, such as the knee and lumbar spine, implantation of a hip prosthesis should be recommended as a therapy.


The most common cause of hip pain is wear and tear of the hip joint, the so-called hip joint arthrosis. In this case, the thigh bone rubs unprotected in the hip socket due to the abrasion of the cartilage tissue. This friction causes inflammation, which results in pain.
Other reasons for hip joint arthrosis can be accidents, malpositions of the legs and the hip joint, infectious diseases, overloading and incorrect loading, as well as genetically determined signs of wear and tear.
