Many of our patients experience hip pain, catching sensations or an inability to bend comfortably at the hip. There are many different causes of hip discomfort, and how we treat the pain depends entirely on what’s causing it. This makes accurate diagnosis particularly important.
At Fulcrum Orthopaedics, we have years of experience in identifying and treating the causes of hip pain. These can include osteoarthritis, bursitis, hip impingement, stress fracture, muscle strains and tendonitis — most frequently involving the iliotibial band (IT band). Some patients experience a labrum tear, which is an injury to the cartilage that surrounds the hip joint, or a tear in the abductor tendon at the hip. It’s even possible that your hip discomfort is actually referred pain from problems in the back and spine, such as herniated discs and sciatica.
Hip arthroscopy and other surgical treatments
We also have experience in cartilage transplantation and custom hip replacements. If you’re having any type of hip issue, Fulcrum Orthopaedics is here to help.
