/ Our Sports Medicine Center and Joint Replacement Center Can Help You
Our hip doctors are key members of both our Sports Medicine Center and Joint Replacement Center. Having dedicated their practices to accessing, diagnosing, and treating hip injuries and conditions, their hip expertise, knowledge, and experience help create solid foundations for our centers and provide patients with exceptional orthopedic care for their hip-related sports injuries and hip joint pain.
When you are seen by one of our hip specialists, you can rest assured that you are receiving the highest level of specialized bone, joint, and muscle care for your hip pain or injury. Committed to offering patients access to the latest evidence-based treatments, techniques, and surgeries, our hip doctors specialize in providing advanced orthopedic care.
To provide an accurate diagnosis of your hip pain, our doctors will assess your hip as well as ask questions about your hip pain. They may also order diagnostic tests, such as X-rays, to help them determine the cause of your hip pain. Once the cause of your pain has been determined, our hip specialists will work together to formulate an individualized treatment plan that utilizes nonsurgical treatment options first instead of recommending surgery, such as hip replacement. These treatments may include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, or another medical treatment. If the conservative treatment options are ineffective at providing relief for your hip pain, our surgeons will develop a surgical plan that is right for you and your pain.
If surgery is recommended for you, our hip surgeons are some of the most highly skilled surgeons and offer a broad range of hip surgeries. This includes the following surgeries and procedures:
- Direct anterior total hip replacement
- Hip osteotomy
- Hip replacement
- Minimally invasive surgery
- Minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty
- Revision total hip replacement
- Surgical fracture care
