How to diagnose and When to Consult a Doctor?

Diagnosis is based on if the patient presents with following conditions : 1) Hip Osteoarthritis - An age related condition where cartilage within the hip joint wears away, leading to bone to bone contact, joint inflammation and the formation of bony spurs. 2 ) Rheumatoid Arthritis - An autoimmune disease where the synovial membrane which lines the joint and produces lubricating fluid, becomes inflamed and thickened, resulting in pain and stiffness. 3) Post-Trauma - A traumatic injury can damage the cartilage within the hip, which in turn, leads to arthritis. 4 ) Osteoporosis and Osteomalacia

When to go for surgery? What would be the complication if not operated?
