Hip & Pelvis Conditions

Hip Arthritis

Symptoms of hip arthritis include discomfort, aching, and stiffness in the groin, buttock, or thigh after sitting for long periods and pain when active. There are several different types of arthritis and the one affecting your joints will determine the treatment options we recommend. Injections, anti-inflammatory medications, braces, and other non-surgical treatments may be able to sufficiently relieve your concerns and improve your quality of life. If surgery is determined to be necessary, our minimally invasive techniques typically help you to heal faster than traditional open surgery.

Thigh Muscle Injuries

Active individuals and athletes are more prone to thigh muscle injury, such as a strain or tear, which can occur after a forceful blow to the muscle or as a result of high-intensity activity (football, track and field, basketball, and other sports, for instance). The thigh includes three major muscles: the hamstring, adductor, and quadriceps. The quadriceps and hamstring muscles, which are located on the front and back, respectively, are at greater risk for injury as they both cross the hip and knee joints. Severe and sudden pain, a popping sound, and bruising are common symptoms of a tear. Our physicians can determine the severity of the injury and recommend treatment. In most cases, a thigh muscle injury will not require surgery.
