Hip osteoarthritis, or wear and tear, can severely limit your daily functioning. The initial symptoms of a deteriorating hip joint are pain in the hip and reduced flexibility compared to normal. CortoClinics can help you with a treatment that fits in with your plans for the future. We provide you with honest advice on the wear and tear in your hip, and you determine the course of action.
Day and Evening Clinic
All you need is a referral from your physician to seek treatment at CortoClinics for hip osteoarthritis. We look forward to welcoming you to our day and evening clinic and helping you regain full mobility.
Treatment for Hip Osteoarthritis
Our orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Nanne Kort, will identify your complaints and perform an examination. He will then explain what the treatment options are for your deteriorating hip joint. Joint degeneration can sometimes be treated conservatively, such as with medication and physical therapy. It could also be that a hip replacement is the right step for you. There is no predetermined treatment plan. We are guided by your needs and desires and plans for the future.

Still have questions about hip surgery?
When you have a health insurance contract with a non-Dutch health insurer you can be treated for your hip- or knee arthroses in CortoClinics. For detailed information how to address the insurance and reimbursement we recommend you to get in touch, in advance, with our Chief Operations Manager: firstname.lastname@example.org.
It takes about an hour to place the prosthetic joint. You then spend the night at the CortoClinics clinic, before immediately returning home the next morning.
Hip replacement surgery requires considerable rehabilitation. Most of your recovery occurs in the first 6 weeks to 3 months after surgery. That is not to say that the final result is achieved by that point. Some people require up to a year to achieve the final result and feel fully recovered.
