Hip pain can be caused by a number of conditions: osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, fractures, strains, labral tears, or certain diseases. To diagnose the cause of your Chestnut Hill hip pain, one of our fine orthopedists will perform a full physical examination and order appropriate blood work and imaging. Once the diagnosis has been made, your treatment options will be discussed. Non-invasive strategies, such as steroid injections, will always be offered before surgery. Hip replacement, also known as total hip arthroplasty, refers to a surgical procedure during which the damaged bone and cartilage in the hip joint is removed and replaced with new artificial components. A hip replacement procedure may be considered when chronic hip pain and disability have not responded to conservative treatments and interfere with normal daily activities.
Arthroscopic repair for hip replacement is a specialty of our orthopedics office and is an effective solution for Chestnut Hill hip pain. A small incision, about the size of a grain of rice, is made and a scope with a camera on the end is passed into your hip joint. The doctor is able to move the scope around the joint as images are relayed to a large screen. This accessibility helps avoid larger incisions and trauma within the joint. Surgical tools also use the same access site and repair the damage. Recovery is faster than traditional, open surgery, the scar is much smaller, and post-operative discomfort is minimal. So if you have hip pain and need a skilled, compassionate orthopedic surgeon, call Longwood Orthopedic Associates today for an appointment.
