Your hip is one of your body’s largest weight-bearing joints. Playing sports, running, overuse, or falling can sometimes lead to hip injuries.
Certain diseases, such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, also cause hip issues. If your hip hurts, get relief with:

Total Hip Arthroplasty:

The hip is a ball-and-socket joint. The top of the thigh (femur) bone (ball) fits into the acetabulum (socket), allowing smooth hip movement in many directions. When the ball and/or socket deteriorate, a procedure to replace the joint with artificial parts (a total hip arthroplasty) may be necessary.

Labral Cartilage Tears and Impingement:

An instrument called an arthroscope helps us see and treat these conditions. Making small incisions, our surgeons insert a camera and small instruments through the incisions to cut away damaged labral cartilage or smooth out irritated and impinging areas. Arthroscopy is minimally invasive.

Hamstring Tendon Tear/Avulsion from Pelvis:

Hamstring tendons are located in the back of the thigh and work with the hamstring muscle to pull your leg backward and propel your body forward while walking or running. Injuries occur when the muscles and tendons are stretched too far. Most injuries can be treated without surgery. However, if the tendon tears away from the pelvis (an avulsion), reattaching the torn hamstring tendon to the pelvis requires surgery.
