Overview of Hip Pain
The hip is one of the most stable joints in the body. But, its function, bearing the body's weight, makes it susceptible to arthritis or injury due to excessive pressure. Pain in the hip may involve injury to muscles, tendons or bursae (small fluid-filled sacs that cushion and lubricate joints).
Hip Pain Treatment
When pain can no longer be managed by medication and lifestyle changes, sometimes it's necessary to remove the damaged bone and replace it with a prosthetic hip implant. Baylor Scott & White Health offers advanced
options for hip replacement surgery, including anterior hip replacement and robotic-assisted procedures.
Treatment plans for patients will be determined by their care team based on age, medical history, type and stage of hip pain and personal preferences. Options may include:
- Physical therapy
- Surgery for hip fracture
- Minimally invasive total hip replacement
- Hip arthroscopy
- Hip resurfacing
- Pain Management
