Coxarthrosis is the wear and tear of the hip joint caused by long-term incorrect loading. Even during normal or healthy walking, the hip must support three to four times the body weight with each step. Incorrect movements, shortened muscles – which are extremely strong, especially in the hip – or unfavorable sports accelerate the wear and tear of what is after all the second largest joint in the body.

Here, both the femoral head and the acetabulum are completely replaced. Through a minimally invasive, tissue-sparing procedure, patients can be mobilized again very quickly. After successful surgery, the joint is again fully loadable and suitable for sports.
