Hip pain can have many causes and treatments, all of which we at Pasadena Orthopedics are equipped to explore at our state-of-the-art orthopedic center with some of the top orthopedic doctors and surgeons in the Pasadena area, including Glendale or San Gabriel Valley.

Some common causes of hip pain include:
  • Osteoporosis (Bone density loss)
  • Osteoarthritis (Cartilage loss) 
  • Hip Fracture (In or near the hip joint) 
  • Pulled Groin Muscles (A common sports medicine injury)
  • Torn Labrum (A ring of cartilage in the hip)
  • Tendinitis (Inflamed tendons)
  • Bursitis (Inflamed or ruptured bursa sac)
  • Hip Impingement (Abnormal hip joint shape from high-intensity activities)
  • Sciatica (Sciatic nerve irritation through the lower back, pelvis, and legs)

The range of treatments available for each of these conditions depends on the severity of the condition. Treatments can range from mild physical therapy support all the way to total hip replacement surgery.

Hip Replacement Surgeons Treat Hip Pain Through Surgical Intervention
──

When the hip joint wears out as part of osteoarthritis or other degenerative joint disease, motion can be restored and pain relieved with a hip replacement.  While this is major surgery, our board-certified physicians are experienced in using an anterior approach, resulting in very rapid recovery and minimal postoperative pain.

An "anterior approach" refers to the direction of the approach to the joint during surgery. Using an anterior approach facilitates rapid recovery, shorter hospital stays and significantly decreased pain after surgery. This means you get back to your favorite activities faster and with less pain.

Hip Arthroscopy for Hip Injuries, Labrum Tears, Impingement and More
──

If you've injured your hip through something like a labral tear (an injury to the ring of cartilage mentioned above) or have hip impingement that needs correction, arthroscopy may be the best option for you. This is the least invasive surgical option for conditions like these. It is still surgical, but technology like video scopes and specially-designed surgical tools allow us to complete these repairs with smaller incisions, meaning less postoperative pain and recovery time.

If you're finding it hard to do the things you love--or even day-to-day tasks--because of hip pain, an appointment with Pasadena Orthopedics is exactly what you need. We can do a physical exam and tests to sort out the cause of your pain and then treat it as effectively as possible. Call
