Hip Surgery and Treatment

Hip injuries can have a significant impact on your life. Hips hold up your weight and allow you to walk, jump, run, and stay active. If your hips cause you pain and limit your ability to move and function, contact an orthopaedic surgeon right away.

At Hernando Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgery, we work with patients who suffer from hip pain, providing both non-surgical and surgical treatments. Get back to enjoying the activities that you love with the help of our experienced professionals.

Common Hip Injuries

Hip pain can result from traumatic injuries, overuse, or medical diseases like osteoarthritis. The first step to treating your hip pain is to determine its cause. 

Common reasons for hip pain include the following:

  • Bursitis
  • Strains
  • Fractures
  • Dislocation
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Hip dysplasia

Surgery is just one of several potential treatments for hip pain, but it is the best option for many patients. Other methods of improving hip pain include physical therapy and medications.

Types of Hip Surgery

Hip surgery may help a patient, depending on the condition that causes their pain. A surgeon can evaluate your case to understand your condition and develop a treatment plan that may include one of the surgical procedures below.

Hip Replacement

In a hip replacement, a damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial joint. Patients can prevent pain and restore their mobility through this procedure. Individuals who have rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, avascular necrosis, post-traumatic arthritis, and some childhood diseases may be able to benefit from a hip replacement.

Hip Resurfacing

In this procedure, a surgeon can remove the damaged parts of a hip and replace those with implants or a shell that can restore function to the joint.

Hip Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is minimally invasive and allows a doctor to see the inside of the hip joint. The surgeon can then repair some damaged tissue and place tissue grafts, as needed. Sometimes, the arthroscopy can illustrate the extent of damage that has happened so that a surgeon can develop an appropriate treatment plan.

Hip surgery may be able to improve your quality of life and your ability to stay active. Contact Hernando Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgery to schedule a consultation with our team of surgeons today.
