Preservation of Your Hip
We want to figure out the cause of your pain so we can give you the best treatment possible. Sometimes hip pain may be alleviated by nonsurgical methods like medication or physical therapy. In those cases our physicians and staff will provide a comprehensive treatment plan that includes testing, diagnosis, education, and treatment.
Over time the hip sees a lot of wear and tear to the cartilage. Eventually, due to injury, arthritis, or another congenital disease, that loss will need to be repaired surgically. You can count on Fullerton Orthopedic to work with you before and after the surgery to make sure you understand the pre- and post-surgery process, including recovery and physical therapy.
Hip Replacement Surgery: Anterior Approach
For athletes, it’s important to get back to their active lifestyles as soon as possible. Their team, and often their future, depends on returning to the game and performing to the best of their ability. For these patients, the Anterior Approach may be the best option, since it typically results in less pain and recovery time. The surgery is done in a way that doesn’t disturb the muscles around the hip and pelvis, which leads to more freedom of movement after the procedure.
