For many years, Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians has faithfully served the residents of Atlanta and the surrounding areas with cutting-edge, effective treatment for arthritis of the hip. As board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons, our doctors are highly qualified to offer a wide variety of hip treatments including stem cell therapy, hip resurfacing and hip replacement surgery. Unlike many other orthopedic surgeons, we do not offer a cookie cutter approach to treating hip arthritis. Instead, we provide a tailored approach that is catered to each patient’s age, lifestyle, goals and activity level.
By combining skill and expertise with the latest and most innovative treatment methods and surgical techniques, our physicians are able to offer more effective results with faster healing times. Our treatment plans are focused on helping patients who suffer from arthritis of the hip find long-term relief from their pain and other symptoms, improved function, improved mobility and a better overall quality of life.
Hip Arthritis Symptoms
Both Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis of the hip cause inflammation of the hip joint that causes the cartilage and other supporting structures of the hip to wear down or wear away, resulting in a variety of symptoms. Symptoms of hip arthritis will vary per patient but may include stiffness, pain with movement or use, limited range of motion/mobility, weakness and more. Our customized treatment plans may include some combination of lifestyle modifications, physical therapy, oral and injected medications, stem cell therapy and more.
If nonsurgical treatments do not provide adequate relief, surgery may be considered. When performing hip surgeries, our orthopedic surgeons work hard to preserve as much of the native joint as possible, while effectively treating the problem. When only certain parts of the hip joint are worn beyond repair, we will replace only the worn parts as opposed to performing a total hip replacement. As with any of our surgical interventions or joint replacements, our patients benefit from patient-specific surgical blocks. Surgical blocks are individually created based on your pre-operative MRI, and provide us with an exact outline of your implant—ensuring proper fit, placement and optimal function for you.
Causes of Hip Arthritis
Hip arthritis can be caused by a variety of factors including wear and tear associated with the aging process or repetitive motion, autoimmune disease that causes the body to attack the tissues and supporting structures in the hip joint, trauma or injury. Regardless of the cause of your hip arthritis symptoms, our orthopedic surgeons and dedicated team are here to help you find relief.
