Anatomy of Hip

Anatomy of the hip joint

The hip joint is one of the body’s largest weight-bearing joints, located between the thigh bone (femur) and the pelvis (acetabulum). It is a ball and socket joint in which the head of the femur is the ball and the pelvic acetabulum forms the socket.

 

The joint surfaces are covered by a smooth articular cartilage which act as a cushion and enables smooth movements of the joint. If the joint surfaces are damaged by arthritis or trauma, then surgery may be recommended.
