Orthopaedic Care for Hip Pain
The hip joint is a ball-and-socket joint that provides the large range of motion needed to perform daily activities. Stair-climbing, jumping and even walking can become difficult when hip pain, instability or disability occurs. Hip conditions or injuries can affect anyone, but are usually more common in women and middle-aged or elderly people. Hip fractures, cartilage tears, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and sciatica are just a few of the many issues that can arise in the hip joint.
Cary Orthopaedics’ physicians focus on identifying the underlying cause of your symptoms and providing an appropriate course of treatment. Depending on your diagnosis, our orthopaedic experts may recommend arthroscopic surgery or a more conservative non-operative treatment, such as injections or physical therapy.
If the condition is more severe or advanced, we have orthopaedic physicians on staff who specialize in performing partial hip replacements or total joint replacements.
