Your provider at Mid Atlantic Orthopedic Associates, LLP, begins your treatment with the most appropriate conservative therapies. Several hip conditions, however, are more likely to eventually need surgery:
Osteoarthritis develops over years of making the same movements. The repetitive stress gradually breaks down the cartilage that covers the ends of bones. As more of the cartilage wears away, the bones rub together, causing pain, stiffness, and gradually damaging the bone.
Most hip fractures require immediate surgery to realign and stabilize the bones using pins and screws.
Mid Atlantic Orthopedic Associates, LLP, use different techniques during hip surgery, including:
Your surgeon treats advanced osteoarthritis with a total hip replacement. In earlier stages of arthritis, you may benefit from hip resurfacing to remove the damaged tissues and cover them with a metal shell.
