  • Osteoarthritis, is a degenerative joint  disease also known as wear and tear arthritis wherein the normal smooth surface of bone wears off resulting in bone to bone contact producing pain .

  • Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, in which the synovial membrane becomes inflamed. This membrane then produces excessive synovial fluid, damaging the articular cartilage.

  • Trauma - serious hip injury or fracture leading to damage of articular cartilage

  • Necrosis - If there is inadequate blood supply to the ball portion of the hip joint, the bone may collapse and deform.

  • Developmental dysplasia, congenital dislocation of hip
