Dr. Sean O Donovan answered:

Can a colonoscopy procedure cause severe hip and leg pain?

Unlikely, but...

Open-uri20121006-19159-14buvnp
Conceivably, an abscess in the pelvis can cause your symptoms, but very unlikely to be caused by a colonoscopy, more likely found by it. If you are concerned, a CT of the abdomen/pelvis may be indicated, especially if you are having fevers and had diverticulosis on your colonoscopy, but let your doctor know this is going on.

What's the procedure for a cortisone injection into the hip joint?

Needle

Open-uri20120722-24878-in6qed
A needle is placed in the hip joint and steroid is injected. This is often times done under xray (fluoroscopy) or ultrasound. The procedure only takes a few minutes, and is not very uncomfortable.

What is the partial hip replacement procedure that replaces just the acetabellum not the femur head?

Acetabular osteotomy

There are acetabular osteotomies that reorient the acetabulum but do not actually replace the surface.

Is there a partial hip replacement procedure that only replaces the acetabellum and not the femur head?

No

Hip_replacement
Both sides of the joint are almost always worn out and require at least the femoral side replaced, if not both.

Dr. Paul A. Manner answered:

Has the FDA appproved hip resurfacing? I have never heard of hip resurfacing. Is this procedure approved by the FDA? .

Yes.

Yes. Hip resurfacing has been approved since 2007. It has been done extensively in the UK and Australia. For some younger, active patients, the best course of action is often total hip resurfacing. Since the head of the femur is preserved, hip resurfacing conserves more of the bone. This is largely due to the fact that instead of removing the head completely, it is shaped to accept an anatomically sized metal sphere. And there is no large stem to go down the central part of the femur. Also, the surface of the socket, acetabulum, is resurfaced and replaced with a metal shell that is pressed directly into the bone. Hip resurfacing is intended for young, active adults who are under 60 years of age and in need of a hip replacement. There are certain causes of hip arthritis that result in extreme deformity of either the head of the femur or the acetabulum. These cases are usually not candidates for hip resurfacing.

Can you reverse a hip girdlestone procedure? Meaning trying to put back the hip prosthesis after more than a year from the girdlstone procedure.

Yes

Hip
The longer you wait the more challenging. If the Girdlestone was for an infection, be sure the infection is cleared. Bone quality can sometimes be a problem.
