Hip Conditions And Treatments
As you age, cartilage in the hip can wear down or become damaged. The muscles and tendons may suffer from overuse, or the hip bone itself can be fractured during a fall or other injury.
At PinnacleHealth we take a multidisciplinary approach to treating a wide range of hip conditions, including:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Muscle tears
- Bone spurs
We will work with you to diagnose your condition and devise a treatment plan that may first include nonsurgical options such as rest, physical therapy, injections or over-the-counter medications to relieve pain and inflammation. But if your symptoms persist or get worse, surgical intervention or a total hip replacement may be the best option.
Experts in Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques
At PinnacleHealth, we specialize in minimally invasive surgical techniques that decrease pain and recovery time. Most of our procedures are laparoscopic and use robotic capabilities, resulting in smaller incisions and minimal blood loss and scarring. Types of surgical procedures for the hip include:
- Hip arthroscopy
- Hip resurfacing
- Iliotibial band syndrome (ITB) release
