Our specialty-trained hip doctors at our Joint Replacement Center and Sports Medicine Center of Excellence at Tri-County Orthopedics are recognized and respected experts in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of hip injuries and conditions.

A frequent complaint with a wide range of causes, hip pain can afflict the active individual as well as the elderly. Most often, determining the location of your hip pain can also be a source in helping to understand its cause. Depending on the reason for your hip pain, treatments for hip pain vary, from conservative nonsurgical treatments to minimally invasive hip surgery, such as arthroscopy and hip replacements.

Patients who suffer from hip pain may visit their primary care physician's office, though a referral is often made to an orthopedic surgeon, who is a medical doctor trained to treat injuries and conditions of the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the entire body, including those from sports-related activities or the onset of aging conditions, such as arthritis. Specialists who undergo additional specialized training for the hip through a fellowship are often referred to as hip specialists and are often experts in sports medicine or joint replacement.

If you're suffering from a hip injury or condition, it may be time to visit a joint or sports medicine doctor at Tri-County Orthopedics.
