Hip Conditions & Surgeries

The hip joint is the largest joint of the human body. A wide range of disorders can affect the hips including various forms. Below are common hip conditions and hip treatments provided by EBJ Proliance Surgeons.

 
 

Snapping Hip

The snapping sensation about the hip results from the movement of a muscle or tendon (the tough, fibrous tissue that connects muscle to bone) over hip's bony structure. Snapping hip is usually painless but can be annoying. Young athletes and dancers frequently experience snapping hip.

Post-Traumatic Arthritis

Injury such as fall or fracture to the hip joint can lead to traumatic arthritis is a form of arthritis that is caused from blunt, penetrating, or repeated trauma to the joint. Traumatic arthritis can cause damage to the articular cartilage of the hip leading to pain.

Hip Osteonecrosis / Avascular Necrosis (AVN)

Osteonecrosis of the hip is a disabling condition that can lead to your hip joint collapsing. This can make it painful to move your hip, and you may develop arthritis and a limp.

Hip Strain

When overuse or injury stretches or tears the muscle fibers, the resulting injury is called a strain. Strains of the muscles around the hip and pelvis can cause pain and spasm. The most common strains are groin pulls and hamstring strains.

Hip Strains

The large bones that make up the hip joint also serve as anchors for several muscles. When overuse or injury stretches or tears the muscle fibers, the resulting injury is called a strain.

Hip Resurfacing

For younger, more active people needing a hip replacement, total hip resurfacing may be a good alternative. The procedure is more bone conserving. It may be better suited for the younger more active high demand patient as it permits a full return to normal activity.

Hip Replacement

If your hip has been damaged by arthritis, common activities such as walking or getting in and out of a chair may be painful and difficult. By replacing your diseased hip joint with an artificial joint, hip replacement surgery can relieve your pain, increase motion, and help you get back to enjoying normal, everyday activities.

Hip Labral Tear

The hip labrum functions as a bumper around the hip socket. Injury or repetitive movement of the hip can cause damage or tearing of the labrum. A hip labral tear often results in pain deep in the groin and/or a "catching" sentation in the hip. Labral tears that do not improve with rest, physical therapy and antiinflammatory medications can be treated with hip arthroscopic surgery.

Hip Bursitis

A "bursa" is a small jelly-like sac usually containing a small amount of fluid. The hip bursa occasionally becomes irritated or inflamed. This is a common cause of hip pain.

Hamstrings

Hamstring injuries are the most common muscle injury in thigh. A "pulled" hamstring is a strain or tear in the muscles or tendons. This injury typically occur during accelerating-deceleration and high-speed running activities, such as basketball, football, and track and field. The best way to prevent hamstring injuries are to maintain flexibility and strength of the hamstring muscles

Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI)

Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI) is a condition in which the bony structure of the hip joint impinges (or contacts) itself during certain motions of the hip. This repetitive impingement can lead to hip labral tears over time. This bony structure can be corrected with hip arthroscopic surgery to prevent impingement from occurring.

Burning Thigh Pain

Meralgia Paresthetica is a condition when a large nerve to the thigh is compressed. Injury to the hip or repetitive activities could irritate the nerve leading to pain, burning sensation, tingling, or numbness in outer part of the thigh.

Hip Fractures

Arthritis of the hip occurs when the cartilage wears out. An arthritic hip joint gets stiff and inflamed. Effective treatments are available.
