Hip Preservation Services

Relieving chronic and misdiagnosed hip pain

Hip pain can be a big roadblock to athletic aspirations, active lifestyles and just everyday living. The hip preservation specialists on the medical staff understand the complex nature and function of the hip. They examine the interactions of the various muscles, tendons, ligaments, vessels and bone to determine the source of the pain.

Treatment that’s right for you

The physicians and staff develop individualized treatmen​t plans for each patient based not only on imaging studies, but also a detailed medical history and in-depth physical exam.

In addition to the medical diagnosis, treatment focuses on what the patient wants to accomplish–whether that’s going for a swim or playing tennis again.

The overall goal is always to relieve pain, preserve function, slow or stop the progression of degenerative hip disease, return the patient to an active lifestyle, and, whenever possible, avoid hip replacement.

Minimally invasive relief for hip pain

Minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery techniques have led to big advances in the successful diagnosis and treatment of hip disorders.

Arthroscopic procedures in the hip region offer patients many potential benefits:

  • No overnight hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Quicker recovery/return to normal activities
