Hip Complaints & Procedures

Welcome to our hip complaint & procedure resource. Here you will get relevant information about your hip complaint that you can discuss with Dr Steyn during your consultation.

The hip joint is the junction where the hip joins the leg to the trunk of the body. It is comprised of two bones: the thighbone or femur, and the pelvis, which is made up of three bones called ilium, ischium and pubis. The ball of the hip joint is made by the femoral head while the socket is formed by the acetabulum.
