Jason Webb offers an individual, bespoke service and adopts a systematic approach to treating all his patients. Pre-operative planning is his mantra. Medical co-morbidities are assessed and Mr Webb, with the help of his consultant anaesthetist colleague Dr Ben Walton, plans the peri-operative care.
Using tried and tested implants, patients can expect excellent results in the majority of cases, with very low risk of complications. Sophisticated computer templating programmes are used to predict the likely implant sizes needed and Mr Webb only uses implants with a proven track records in the National Joint Registry.
Hip replacement revision
Modern hip replacements last very well, with more than 95% expected to be still functioning 10 years after implantation. However hip replacements do gradually wear out, necessitating in some cases, repeat or revision surgery. Instability, infection, loosening and pain are all symptoms that may indicate that a hip replacement needs to be changed. Revision hip surgery is more complex than primary replacements and requires expert planning and advanced surgical skills to minimize the complications. Jason Webb has a specialist revision hip surgery practice where each case is assessed on an individual basis.
Lateral hip syndrome / Trochanteric bursitis treatment
Lateral hip syndrome is a common cause of pain in the hip region. Formerly known as Trochanteric bursitis, it is now recognised to be caused by a variety of musculoskeletal conditions that lead to overload of the muscles and tendons that pass the outer aspect of the hip. The key to successful treatment is diagnosis of the principal cause. Following a detailed clinical assessment, Mr Webb will confirm the diagnosis with the help of one of his musculoskeletal radiology colleagues (Drs Mike Bradley; Martin Williams; Roland Watura; Mark Cobby and Charles Wakeley). Treatments options include exercise advice; Pilates; physiotherapy; pain relieving anti-inflammatory injections and surgery.
Jason Webb takes a systematic approach to his patients and the treatment of hip disorders and disease; identifying the most appropriate treatment on a patient by patient basis. In many cases problems in the hip region may be the result of problems with the lower back or knees. In addition many hip-disorders have long phases where non-operative treatments may be effective. Using his clinical skills and undertaking thorough investigations an individual treatment plan can be put together. For example, in the early stages, the symptoms of hip arthritis can be improved by, weight loss; regular low impact and flexibility exercises; simple analgesia; and the use of activity aids.
