Physicians use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs along with strengthening programs to treat mild to moderate pain associated with inflammation in the hip.
With a small incision, a surgeon can insert a pencil-sized optical device into the hip joint to see into the joint and correct problems.
Hip dysplasia procedures
To change the shape of the hip joint, a surgeon will typically re-shape the shallow hip socket (acetabulum) so it is in a better position to cover the ball of the hip joint.
A physician dislocates the hip, removes the excess bone and damaged tissues and reattaches the femur bone with two screws.
To help relieve hip pain and diagnose the cause of the pain, physicians commonly prescribe injections.
MAKOplasty® minimally invasive surgery
Physicians turn to MAKOplasty for joint repair and replacement because it is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses advanced robotic technology. This precise surgery for hip injuries often results in less scarring, reduced pain and faster recovery.
The goal of musculoskeletal rehabilitation is to help you return to the highest level of function and independence possible.
Physical therapy is an integral component to a physician’s approach of examining and treating hip pain. It can help determine the underlying causes of hip pain.
SuperPath Hip Replacement
The SuperPath® technique is a tissue-sparing procedure that aims to get patients back on their feet within days (possibly hours) instead of weeks or months. A number of patients who have undergone this procedure could walk unassisted the day after surgery, and left the hospital without the typical restrictions (such as crossing their legs) associated with total hip replacement.
When the inflamed synovial lining of the hip joint causes disabling pain, a physician can remove the lining by inserting heat-generating radio frequency probes inside the joint capsule.
Treatment of labral tears
The location, chronicity and vascularity of the injured fibrocartilage determine the way a surgeon treats labral tears, with the goal of preserving healthy tissue.
