Hip 2

Hip Arthritis

This is a type of arthritis that can affect people of all ages. It’s not the same as the most common form of arthritis, called “osteoarthritis.” That type commonly comes from wear and tear. Inflammatory arthritis can develop without any wear and tear at all.

Hip Bursitis

Hip Bursitis is an irritation or swelling of the trochanteric bursa, a small, fluid-filled sac on the outer side of the femur. It acts as a cushion for the iliotibial band, a thick tendon in the leg.

Hip Fracture

Fractures, or broken bones, vary in severity depending on the force that caused them.

Common symptoms of fractures include intense pain, swelling, tenderness, bruising, or visible deformity. In severe cases, a bone may puncture through the skin.

Treatment for fractures depends on factors like the severity of the break, whether it’s an “open” or “closed” fracture, and the specific bone affected. Options include cast immobilization, braces, traction, external fixation, or surgery.

Healing time typically ranges from six to eight weeks, with X-rays monitoring bone healing progress. Pain often subsides before the bone fully heals. Physical therapy may be recommended to restore muscle strength, joint motion, and flexibility during recovery.

Hip Impingement

Hip Impingement is a problem with the hip joint. In a healthy hip, the femur ball is smooth and round. It fits perfectly into the hip socket. But with this condition, the ball, the socket, or both the ball and the socket are shaped poorly. They don’t fit together well, and when you move your hip, they rub together harmfully.

Hip Pain

When arthritis, fractures, or other hip conditions hinder daily activities like walking or sitting, our skilled orthopedic specialists prioritize non-invasive treatments such as injections, medication, and physical therapy as initial care options for hip pain. Surgical intervention is only considered when necessary, with a focus on minimally invasive and arthroscopic techniques to enhance accuracy, minimize recovery time, and reduce scarring. Total hip replacement is a proven procedure aimed at restoring mobility and enabling individuals to resume their usual routines with ease.

Hip Labral Tears

If your hip joint hurts or catches or clicks when you move your leg, you may have a torn labrum. That’s a rim of tissue that surrounds the hip’s socket. It helps to deepen the socket and cushion the joint. A torn labrum can keep the hip joint from working smoothly.

Avascular Necrosis

Avascular necrosis refers to the weakening and collapse of the bone in the femoral head, which is the ball-shaped structure that fits into the hip socket. As this bone deteriorates and fractures, it can lead to the onset of painful arthritis in the hip joint.
