The pelvis is an anatomical structure located between the abdomen and legs. It consists of four bones: the two hip bones, the sacrum, and the coccyx. The pelvis supports the weight of the upper body as well as many organs such as the bladder and reproductive organs. It also serves as a point of attachment for many muscles that move the legs and pelvis.
The hip joint is formed by the pelvis and femur (thigh bone). It is one of the largest joints in the body and allows for movement in several directions, including rotation, flexion, extension, abduction, and adduction. The hip joint is the point of attachment for many muscles that move the pelvis and legs, including the gluteus maximus, iliopsoas, vastus lateralis, tensor fasciae latae, and rectus femoris. The hip joint also serves as a shock absorber to help protect the spine from injury when walking or running. The pelvis and hip work together to help maintain balance and stability in the body, allowing us to move freely without pain or instability.
The pelvis and hip are essential to everyday activities such as walking, running, jumping, and climbing. Without them, our bodies would be unable to perform basic tasks. It is important to understand the anatomy of the pelvis and hip in order to keep these parts of our body healthy and functioning properly. Regular exercise and stretching can help to keep the pelvis and hip strong, flexible, and mobile. Taking care of your pelvis and hip will ensure that you can enjoy a full range of motion for many years to come.
Hip Intramedullary Nail surgery is a procedure that involves the insertion of a device known as a Hip Intramedullary Nail into the femur bone. This device is used to stabilize and support the hip joint, by locking in place along the inside of the femur bone. It is designed to provide a high level of stability to allow patients to walk on it. Hip Intramedullary Nail surgery has been shown to be an effective way of treating hip fractures, although it is still relatively new. The Hip Intramedullary Nail is then inserted through a small incision in the skin, near the
hip joint. It is then secured into place using either screws or pins. Once it is securely in place, the Hip Intramedullary Nail will help provide support and stability to the hip joint. Following surgery, patients can usually begin physical therapy within a few days of the procedure.
Hip Percutaneous Screw surgery (also known as percutaneous fixation) is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the insertion of screws directly into the hip. During Hip Percutaneous Screw surgery, a wire is used to guide the metal screw through the skin and into the top of the femur (or thigh bone). Once the screws are in place, it will stay securely within the bone to hold it together and enable healing.
Hip Arthroplasty surgery is a major orthopedic procedure that can provide relief from pain, improved mobility, and an enhanced quality of life. The surgery replaces the hip joint with an artificial one made of metal and plastic components. It is usually recommended for people with severe pain and stiffness, limited range of motion in the hip or if other treatments such as physical therapy and medication are not providing relief.
The surgery is performed under general and/or regional anesthesia. During the procedure, a surgeon will make an incision in the hip area to access the joint, then remove any damaged cartilage or bone with special instruments. A new artificial joint is then inserted into place, secured with screws or cement depending on the type of device being used. Following surgery, a patient can expect to have several weeks of physical therapy to regain strength and range of motion in the hip joint as well as reduce pain.
