Hip osteoarthritis is a common pathology, which causes great pain and disability. Medical treatment is based on analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs, including natural painkillers. However, in addition to the complications associated with their prolonged administration, they are less effective as the disease progresses. Treatment alternatives include: resection, debridement, thermal chondroplasty and/or microfracture with or without biological coadjuvants (Hyaluronic Acid, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC).
Surgical treatment involves prosthetic joint replacement. It is only indicated for very advanced osteoarthritis or osteoarthritis that does not improve with conservative treatment.
