Hip Pain & Injuries

Our hip doctors at Shady Grove Orthopaedics are recognized leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of hip injuries and conditions. Hip pain can be the result of a condition that has developed over time, such as bursitis and arthritis, or of a recent hip injury, such as a hip fracture or hip dislocation.

In some cases, and if not detected early, conditions such as hip bursitis and hip arthritis may create extreme bone and joint discomfort, making surgery a credible option for relieving your hip pain.

Additional Information

When Should You See a Hip Doctor?

Signs and symptoms of hip pain include:

  • Joint pain felt in the front of the hip, along the outside of the hip, in the groin, or over the buttock area
  • Discomfort and swelling in the thigh and knee
  • Joint inflammation or hip muscle spasms, which may cause fluid accumulation in the hip joint
  • Limping or the inability to walk comfortably on the affected side
  • Inability to bend or rotate the hip
  • Soreness and the feeling of the hip throbbing while sleeping or resting
  • Fever, redness, and warmth, which are signs of infection

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, you may have a hip condition, such as hip osteoarthritis, hip bursitis, hip arthritis, or an injury like a fractured hip, dislocated hip, hip flexor injury, or labral tear.

 

Conditions include, but are not limited to:

  • Fracture care of the hip
  • Primary total hip replacement
  • Revision total hip replacement
  • Total hip replacement
  • Labral tears
  • Total joint replacement
  • Total joint revision
