About Canine Hip Replacement
Canine hip replacement involves replacing the “ball and socket” of the hip joint and is most often performed for severe osteoarthritis of the hip joint. It has been performed since the 1970s and continues to evolve. There are various systems manufactured but very little information on how these systems perform.
In addition, other risk factors for canine patients are poorly understood at the current time. The Canine Hip Registry exists to try and answer some of these questions.
The BVOA -UoL Canine Hip Registry was launched in 2009 by by Professor John Innes, University of Liverpool . The current director of the Registry is Professor Eithne Comerford and it has now over 1000 patients enrolled.
