For people with hip pain, there are many treatment options available that can range from physical therapy to partial and total hip replacement. At Porter Adventist Hospital, our team of experienced orthopedic surgeons and specialists work closely with each patient we see to discuss options and to determine what treatments may best fit a patient's individual needs.
Treatment options often depend on the cause of the pain, how the joint is affected, the severity of the condition, and how the condition affects a person's daily activities. Everything from age and occupation to sports activity and hobbies is taken into account as we work with patients to create a custom treatment plan.
Hip pain can be the result of fractures, arthritis, osteonecrosis, trochanteric bursitis, tendinitis, strains, sprains, lower back pain or an infection. Our team will help properly diagnose a patient's hip condition and recommend treatment options that will alleviate hip pain and restore mobility.
A non-invasive surgical option for treating joint pain is a hip arthroscopy. By inserting an arthroscope (a miniature camera) through a very small incision near the patient’s joint, the surgeon can identify the source or internal damage that is causing pain. Through this evaluation, instruments are then inserted through additional small incisions in order to smooth or shave the inflamed or damaged areas. Instruments can include “shavers” which help cut away distressed cartilage and also drill into areas of the bone where cartilage has worn away, in order to stimulate the growth of new cartilage. Most commonly, arthoscopic produces are done to remove painful bone fragments and repair a torn labrum, which is the cartilage attached to the hip socket holding the thighbone securely in its socket.
A hip arthroscopy is only recommended for patients who have not responded to nonsurgical treatments which include physical therapy, medications or injections. While hip arthroscopy may relieve painful symptoms caused by damage the joint area, there are many orthopedic conditions can lead to the cause of these problems such as:
