Versus System

The hip joints are one of the single most important aspects of the human body for maintaining both balance and correct posture. In fact, the pelvic inclination angle tends to be adjusted at the hips. If issues occur with the hips, this can affect your overall articulation and make simple functions such as walking, sitting and standing and climbing stairs either difficult or impossible.

If either one or both of the hip joints has been compromised, the most logical solution is to replace the joint outright. Here at Blue Tree Clinics, we are pioneers of the medical community boasting access to the very latest technologies and knowledge of the most up-to-date techniques. The Versus System is just one such solution that our orthopedists in Dubai are able to provide you with.

The Versus System represents the latest in artificial hip joint replacement surgery. This implant boasts an innovative design and has been specially developed to enhance mobility and provide a greater range of motion. Another benefit of this system is that many patients report that noticing almost no difference between the implant and their original hip joint.

If you would like to know more about the Versus System, give Blue Tree Clinics a call today, and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

Causes

As mentioned above, any problems that affect the hip joints can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life. This damage can occur due to a whole host of reasons, for instance as a result of rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis – both of which are conditions which cause the immune system to attack the joints.

Other causes can include ankylosing spondylitis – a chronic condition which is often characterised by inflammation which occurs in areas of the body that include the spine. The hip joints can also be severely damaged as a result of a traumatic injury such as a car accident or a fall from height. Whatever the cause, we are here to offer you the right solution with a range of options including the incredible Versus System in Dubai.

Treatment

Before treatment can begin, we will assess your physical condition and carry out a full review of your medical history. We always suggest physiotherapy or steroid injections to start with, as these may be able to resolve the problem without the need for surgery. If you continue to suffer from the following symptoms, let us know, and we’ll book you in for your hip replacement surgery:

  • Severe pain
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Reduced mobility

The Versus System will be fitted under a general anaesthetic by a member of our highly-trained orthopedic team. A small incision is made, and the damaged hip joint is removed. The replacement joint consists of a ball comprised of a metal or ceramic alloy that fits into the joint socket. This is fitted into the hollow of the thigh bone by a medical grade shaft.

Testimonial

“I have always prided myself on my independence, but after a recent fall left my hip badly damaged, I found that independence had been ripped away from me. The guys at Blue Tree were incredibly understanding and bent over backwards to help me get back on my feet again. With their help, I was able to regain my independence – a fact for which I am truly grateful.” – Mallick
