Hip

Our services for the hip include non-surgical methods. Many of our patients with hip pain have bursitis, tendonitis, or pain from their back, all non-surgical conditions. These are usually treated with a combination of non-narcotic pain relief and injections. Our patients who have back pain referring to their hip are treated with anti-inflammatories, exercises that are quick (60 seconds each), easy and done at home. If this is not enough they are referred to an interventional pain doctor, usually an anesthesiologist, who will do pain relieving injections in their office. Some hips have a torn gasket and that needs to be stitched up by our surgeons with arthroscopy as an outpatient. Some need a total hip replacement. We use the latest techniques for the easiest recovery possible.
