Sažetak

Osteoarthritis, as the most common form of arthritis, affects predominantly middle-aged and elderly population worldwide. This chronic, degenerative, progressive and multifactorial joint disease can affect different joints in the body. One of the most commonly affected joints with osteoarthritis is the hip joint. Hip osteoarthritis is characterized by the presence of pain, stiffness, and limping which ultimately results with inability to perform activities of daily living.
