The Hip Section

The Hip Section performs advanced hip surgeries on patients living in the county of Aarhus. Additionally, about 1/3 of the patinets are referred from other counties or other countries. Patients from the county of Aarhus and other counties need a referral from the local hospital or from their own doctor.

The Hip Section demands the latest techniques, operational as well as anaesthetically, through a close collaboration with the Anaesthesia Department. The staff focuses on an optimal course for the patient with comprehensive information, controlled anaesthesia with blod saving methods and an effectively forced course after the operation.

The Hip Section does comprehensive experimental and clinical research and has won several international awards for scientific research. The Hip Section collaborates with a number og research laboratories in other countries, among others USA and Holland.

Under "Information for patients" you can read about hip disorders and treatments performed at the Hip Section, e.g. hip dysplasia, osteoarthritis, Calvé Legg Perthes, epifysiolysis, telescope examinations and Ganz operation.
