Congenital left hip since birth

Hi, I was recently told I was born with a congenital left hip, after 7 yrs off pain & physio they eventually x-rayed me and found the problem. I was given a MRI 3 wks ago and my consultant called and said there was some changes on the femoral head !! I now have to wait 3 weeks to see him again to discuss the treatment plan. I am on tramadol & diclofenic using crutches constantly mother off 3 young children aged 32yrs. Do u know what treatment plans I may be offered ?

Hi there. Thank you for posting your question with Healthcaremagic. I will do my best to help you.

You will need total hip replacement on the effected side sooner rather than later. This is the only long-term solution. You should not fear this surgery as today it has been very much simplified and has been made safer. Just think of the the pain relief that you will get. To prepare for this surgery get yourself as fit as possible and, if you need to, loose weight. Good luck.

I hope that I have answered your questions fully and been of some help. If you have anymore questions please contact me again anytime.

Dr Andrew Rynne.
