Hip Arthroscopy

Anti-inflammatories

Doctors use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs along with strengthening programs to treat mild to moderate pain associated with inflammation in the hip.

Hip arthroscopy

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.

Impingement procedures

A doctor dislocates the hip, removes the excess bone and damaged tissues and reattaches the femur bone with 2 screws.

Injections

To help relieve a patient’s hip pain as well as to diagnose the direct cause of the pain, doctors commonly prescribe injections.

Musculoskeletal rehabilitation

The goal of musculoskeletal rehabilitation is to help you return to the highest level of function and independence possible.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy is an integral component to a doctor’s approach of examining and treating hip pain. It can be used to assist in gaining an understanding of the underlying causes of hip pain.

Pre-operative Radiation for Heterotopic Ossification

Radiation treatment may be used to prevent heterotopic ossification (extra bone growth) before or after a joint replacement surgery.

Synovectomy

When the inflamed synovial lining of the hip joint causes disabling pain, a doctor 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.
