Your hips are made up of a ball-and-socket joint that makes it possible for you to bend, sit, and walk. Ligaments keep your hip joints in place, and protective cartilage lines the ends of your bones to help them move without friction.
When any of the structures in your hip joints have damage from an injury or disease, it can cause persistent pain and limit what you can do physically.
Southern Oregon Orthopedics & Paragon Orthopedic Center offers comprehensive care for a variety of hip conditions including:
The providers can also evaluate hip injuries that occur during sports or other high-impact activities.
If rest and over-the-counter medications aren’t enough to relieve persistent hip pain, you should schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Southern Oregon Orthopedics & Paragon Orthopedic Center.
The physicians also recommend getting an evaluation for hip pain that worsens even with treatment or if you lose mobility in your hip.
Southern Oregon Orthopedics & Paragon Orthopedic Center offers on-site X-rays and other diagnostic imaging tests to evaluate the structures of your hip joint. They can identify labral tears, fractures, and other conditions and customize a treatment plan to help you heal.
In the early stages of arthritis or after a dislocation, your physician at Southern Oregon Orthopedics & Paragon Orthopedic Center might recommend medications to reduce inflammation and pain, so you can participate in physical therapy.
If you have serious damage in your hip joint from an injury or degenerative condition, you might need surgery. The orthopedic surgeons offer a variety of surgeries to address hip damage and deformities, including:
Anterior hip replacement is a minimally invasive procedure that requires only a small incision (3-4 inches) on the front of your hip to access the joint. Your surgeon replaces your joint without detaching nearby tendons, so you heal faster and can resume your usual activities sooner.
In a total hip replacement, the surgeons replace damaged bones and cartilage in your hip joint with an artificial joint. This joint works just like your natural joint to support your weight and help you move without restriction.
MAKOplasty is an innovative hip replacement procedure that uses robotic surgery techniques. Your surgeon controls the RIO™ robotic arm to replace your hip joint with a high level of accuracy. They follow a 3D anatomic reconstruction plan based on a computed tomography (CT) scan of your hip to ensure your surgery is a success.
