Some orthopaedic surgeons specialise in disorders of the hip. They deal with conditions such as arthritis of the hip and hip injuries. The operations and treatments that hip specialists offer include total and partial hip replacement, and hip resurfacing (Birmingham-Type hip replacements).
There is a professional association for orthopaedic surgeons in the UK who have a special interest in hip surgery and treatment - the British Hip Society (BHS). Most UK hip replacement surgeons will belong to this organisation.
The British Orthopaedic Association is the professional association for over 4000 surgeons and training surgeons treating injuries and disorders of bones, joints and their associated tissues.
