Hip pain due to arthritis is a common problem. Total hip arthroplasty is successful but failure still cannot be excluded. Since resources are scarce, alternative methods are looked for. We have described the alternative and to encourage to consider economic evaluation in the future. We have treated 560 patients (717 hips) hip joint-disease-pain with the new non-surgical treatment. On the basis of the results the use of the enzyme appear to be successful alternative treatment.
