Following previous hip surgery, some patients can develop weakness or failure of the muscles/tendons at the side of the hip. This can cause instability of the hip or a waddling walk and eventually pain at the side of the hip.

This can cause instability of the hip or a waddling walk and eventually pain at the side of the hip. Often the tissues are not of good quality so are reconstructed using an artificial ligament (Lars Ligament). When this is combined with a comprehensive and prolonged rehabilitation program, good function can be restored, although not usually to the level that they had before the original hip replacement.
