When should I see a hip specialist in Melbourne?

If you’ve been suffering from hip pain for a significant amount of time and the pain and discomfort hasn’t subsided, you should seek the expertise of a hip specialist. Also if the pain starts to intensify and you can't move your leg or hip or you have sudden swelling or redness around your hip, you should see a hip specialist immediately.

Treatments for hip pain

Dr Chandrasekaran will often first trial non-surgical treatments to manage your hip pain but if that proves to be not enough, he may recommend surgery. The different treatment options include:


  • Hip Conditioning Program - a range of exercises targeting the muscles around the hip, designed to improve strength and flexibility.
  • Hyaluronic Acid Injections - provide pain relief and also increase the viscosity of the synovial fluid, acting as a shock absorber to protect the soft tissue from trauma.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation - a new and innovative technique used to interfere with pain signals transmitted from the injured joint.


  • Hip Arthroscopy - hip arthroscopy is keyhole surgery of the hip joint that's used to observe, diagnose and treat a range of issues.
  • Hip Replacement - during total hip replacement surgery, the “ball and socket joint” of your hip is replaced with an artificial prosthesis.
