Before the surgery an orthopedic surgeon will counsel the patient in person and carry out examination and evaluation. The surgeon will thoroughly check the patient’s medical history so as to ensure that the patient is healthy enough to undergo surgery. The surgeon will physically examine the hip, paying attention to the range of motion in your joint and the strength of the muscles around the hip. Blood tests, and X-ray or other radiological investigations are routine procedures that may be required.
