Conservative Hip Treatment
When possible, our orthopedic specialists will recommend conservative treatments. The majority of hip patients at The Center For Musculoskeletal Disorders do not require a surgical procedure.
When hip pain cannot be managed through conservative treatment options we offer minimally invasive surgical procedures as well as partial and full replacement surgeries.
Patients with significant hip inquires and disorders may need surgery to reduce pain and restore mobility. Hip surgery will likely require general anesthesia.
Hip replacement surgeries are performed as a result of hip factures, disease or progressive arthritis. Replacement surgery involves the replacement of damaged bone and cartilage..
