The normally stable hip joint, the most stable joint in the human body, lies between the femur and the pelvis, surrounded by protective muscle and cushioned by rubbery cartilage. While capable of seven different types of movements, the primary function of this powerful joint is to support the weight of the body in both standing and active postures. As a true ball-and-socket joint, a healthy hip is capable of providing a great amount of stability and the large range of motion necessary for daily activities like walking, sitting, and climbing stairs. When the performance of the hip is compromised due to a congenital deformity, osteoporosis, arthritis, or a fracture, the joint demands careful and prompt attention.
Many members of our team have extensive training and experience in total joint care. From the non-operative management of osteoporosis and arthritis to minimally invasive total hip replacements, our physicians stay abreast of the latest research on conservative care options, implant devices, and surgical techniques to provide comprehensive, customized treatment for hip pain sufferers of all ages.
