Hip Conditions We Specialize InHip Arthroscopy - Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure performed to diagnose and repair a number of injuries affecting the hip. This surgery results in shorter recovery timelines and reduces the risk of complications associated with open surgery.
Hip Labral Tears - A hip labral tear is a rupture of the acetabular labrum, which is the cartilage surrounding the socket of the hip joint. This condition can result in a sense of stiffness, weakness, or instability in the affected hip, greatly limiting the patient’s range of motion. Minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery is often used to treat a hip labral tear.
Hip Impingement - Hip impingement refers to an abnormal degree of friction between the bones in the hip joint, which can irritate the surrounding cartilage or bursae, causing significant pain. In severe cases, hip impingement may need to be repaired with arthroscopic surgery.
Hip Bursitis - Hip bursitis is an inflammation of a bursa — a sac of fluid between the bones and soft tissues — in the hip. Frequently caused by hip impingement, it can deprive the hip of a complete range of motion, preventing it from functioning properly.
Gluteus Medius Tears - The gluteus medius is a muscle that runs along the side of the hip. A tear in this area often causes inflammation and sharp pain on the side of the hip whenever patients attempt to put weight on the affected leg.
