Osteoarthrosis is a degenerative disease. This ailment has various stages during which different types of treatment are appropriate:
During the early stage, osteoarthrosis can be treated with diet changes, appropriate exercise, medication and physiotherapy .
In the advanced stage, surgical intervention is necessary. Traditional hip replacement surgery is suitable for older people who are no longer very active.
Resurfacing is a less invasive technique which is less traumatic than complete hip replacement. This treatment is suitable for more active patients, and allows a return to all the physical activities they enjoyed before the intervention.
