Recognizing the Importance of Hip Care
Hips play an integral role in much of your body’s daily movements, from sitting, bending, and standing to walking, running, and dancing. This cup-and-ball-like joint connects the thighbone with the trunk in a way that allows you to move in all different directions—when it’s working properly. But when it’s not, this normally versatile joint can hinder your regular movements and make normal daily activities more difficult.
Luckily, hip care has evolved over the years with state-of-the-art procedures and technologies that enable physicians to care for and repair hip joints after injuries, the onset of arthritis or other illnesses, or general wear and tear as patients age. Our hip care specialists can treat a wide range of conditions using minimally invasive surgical interventions, transplants, and other innovative therapies based on a careful diagnosis of your pain and preferences for care.
Hip Arthroscopy Care at Orthopedic Center for Sports Medicine
As one of our facility’s hip care specialties, arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that enables our hip specialists to see clearly inside the hip joint to ensure more accurate diagnosis and treatment recommendations. During the procedure, your surgeon inserts into your hip joint an arthroscope, which is a small camera that displays images of your hip joint onto a television screen to help your surgeon guide small surgical instruments.
