Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Infiltration of local anesthetic
30 ml of ropivacaine 0.5% infiltrated around lateral anterior and medial aspect of hip joint with ultrasound guidance.
Procedure: Infiltration of local anesthetic
30 ml of ropivacaine 0.5% infiltrated around lateral anterior and medial aspect of hip joint with ultrasound guidance.
Placebo Comparator: Normal Saline Injection
injection of 30ml normal saline infiltrated around lateral anterior and medial aspect of hip joint with ultrasound guidance.
Procedure: Normal Saline Injection
injection of 30ml normal saline infiltrated around lateral anterior and medial aspect of hip joint with ultrasound guidance.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Post operative opioid consumption. [ Time Frame: Within 24 hours after surgery ]
    Amount in milligrams of opioid consumption post surgery in the recovery room and for a 24 hour period.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pain scores in recovery room. [ Time Frame: Within 24 hours of the surgery ]
    Mesures of pain score using numeric pain rating scale (0=no pain, 10=worst pain) completed by patient in recovery room and every 6 hours for a 24 hour period after discharge from recovery room.
