What We Specialize InHip Arthroscopy - Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure performed to diagnose and repair a number of injuries affecting the hip. This procedure results in shorter recovery timelines and reduces the risk of complications associated with open surgery.
Total Hip Replacement - A total hip replacement entails the complete replacement of the hip joint with an artificial prosthesis. It can be an effective treatment for patients with advanced arthritis in the hip.
Hip Labral Tears - A hip labral tear is a rupture of the acetabular labrum, which is the cartilage surrounding the socket of the hip joint. Often caused by hip impingement, it can result in a sense of stiffness, weakness, or instability in the affected hip, greatly limiting the patient’s range of motion.
Hip Impingement - Hip impingement refers to an abnormal degree of friction between the bones in the hip joint, usually created by an imperfect fit between the head of the femur (the ball) and acetabulum (the socket). The bones can then irritate the surrounding cartilage or bursae, causing significant pain.
Hip Bursitis - Hip bursitis is an inflammation of a bursa — a sac of fluid between the bones and soft tissues — in the hip. Frequently caused by hip impingement, it can deprive the hip of a complete range of motion, preventing it from functioning properly.
Hip Dislocation - A dislocated hip arises when the head of the femur is partially or completely dislodged from the acetabulum. Like other dislocations, it results in severe pain and severely restricts the patient’s ability to use the joint.
