Options for treating hip injuries

Depending on your hip pain symptoms, our hip specialists may recommend a period of non-operative treatment, including modified activities, physical therapy, medication, and steroid injections. There are some hip conditions that may not respond to non-operative care and may require surgical treatment. Our surgeons offer patients expertise in advanced minimally invasive hip arthroscopy surgery and open surgical techniques, like hip replacement surgery, that help you achieve your goals of hip and groin pain relief and get back into the game.
