The hip is a ball and socket joint and is located in a complex area of the body. Orthopedic sports medicine doctors and joint replacement specialists provide care for patients with hip injuries and pain. Hip pain can arise at any age – for younger, active patients hip pain usually stems for an injury to the hip. As we age, the cartilage may wear out and that opens the door for arthritis to set into the hip joint. Joint replacement specialists evaluate and treat these patients and offer traditional, minimally invasive, and revision surgeries to replace the hip joint, alleviate pain and restore motion.

Common conditions that lead to hip pain include:

  • Hip Fractures
  • Hip Impingement (FAI)
  • Labral Tears in the Hip
  • Snapping Hip
  • Hip Arthritis
  • Femoral Fractures
  • Stress Fractures of the Hip
  • Gluteus Medius Tears
  • Hip Flexor Strain
  • Piriformis Syndrome
  • Arthritis and osteoarthritis
