Your hips take a lot of wear and tear over the years.

Medical conditions such as arthritis or an injury can make movement uncomfortable. You don't have to live with the pain. 

Our orthopedic specialists provide expert care and treatment for a variety of hip related conditions. Some of the hip problems we treat include:

Hip impingement

Hip impingement is a disorder caused by excess bone and, therefore, lack of space between the neck of the femur and the rim of the socket.

Hip problems

No matter what ailment you are experiencing in your hip area, our multi-disciplinary team of specialists will work together to diagnose and treat your specific needs.

Hip resurfacing

If your hip has been damaged by arthritis or a traumatic injury, and everyday activities are painful or difficult to perform, you may be a candidate for hip resurfacing. Hip resurfacing is an alternative to a total hip replacement and is often recommended for younger patients.

Osteonecrosis of the hip

Osteonecrosis of the hip can cause a disruption of the blood supply to the bone at the head of the femur. This disorder can lead to very serious symptoms, including the collapse of the hip joint.

Total hip replacement

Who needs a hip replacement? Anyone who experiences stiffness or pain in his or her hip joint that can’t be relieved by medication and is unable to walk even a short distance. Learn more about robotic-assisted surgery options.
