Osteoarthritis

Wear and tear of the hip joint due to age-related degenerative change.

It usually occurs in the older patient and may have a genetic cause. Over time the hip cartilage wears away causing hip pain and stiffness. Patients may find it difficult to walk long distance, climb stairs and perform simple activities of daily living such as putting on shoes and socks.
