Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis of the joints is the most common cause of chronic pelvic pain, usually occurring in people over the age of 50 or with a family history of osteoarthritis. In this case, the cartilage of the pelvic bone is destroyed, and pain and stiffness in the hip joint occur while the pelvic bones wear out.
Congenital pelvic diseases: Some children and babies have congenital pelvic problems. Although this condition is often treated in childhood, sometimes the pelvis does not grow normally and affects the pelvic joint, which can lead to osteoarthritis later in life.
Post-traumatic Arthritis: Following serious sports injuries, accidents and fractures, the pelvic joint may be damaged, causing pelvic pain and wear over time.
Pelvic joint replacement
Pelvic joint replacement surgery
Pelvic replacement surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia (so that the person is completely anesthetized and does not feel pain), but it can also be done with spinal or epidural anesthesia, in which case the body is numb from the waist down. The type of anesthesia is determined based on the opinion of the medical team.
