The hip is a complex ball-and-socket joint, and there are a number of conditions that could cause any or all of the following hip symptoms:

  • Giving way

If you are concerned about your hip pain, you should speak to your GP, and you can ask to be privately referred to one of our Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons.
