People of varying ages and lifestyles are susceptible to hip problems. Osteoarthritis – the loss of cartilage in the hip joint due to wear and tear – is common among baby boomers and seniors. Young athletes, on the other hand, can suffer from cartilage or ligament tears that can sideline them for several months.
Our physicians have extensive training in evaluating and treating hip injuries and disorders. With recent technological advancements in both surgical and nonsurgical treatment, we are able to take a less invasive approach to hip repair.
After discussing the nature of your hip problem, we will order the appropriate diagnostic tests, including x-rays and magnetic resonance images (MRIs) as needed, and develop a treatment plan to meet your needs.
The knee joint is a system of moving parts consisting of cartilage, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It is a hinge that gives your body strength to run, squat, jump and turn. Because it cannot rotate in every direction, the knee is vulnerable to a number of injuries and conditions.
Our expert knee surgeons use leading-edge techniques such as minimally invasive knee replacement and partial knee resurfacing to restore mobility and function. Whether you are struggling with osteoarthritis of the knee, a torn ACL or a torn meniscus, we will develop an individualized treatment plan to safely return you to health.
