Ultrasound Guided Hip Injections
An ultrasound scan is an imaging procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Ultrasound-guided hip joint injections are used to diagnose the underlying cause and relieve hip pain. The injection consists of a special mixture of an anesthetic and a steroid that blocks pain impulses and reduces inflammation in the injected area.
Non-Surgical Hip Treatments
The hip is a ball-and-socket joint that connects the thigh bone to the pelvic bone. As a major weight-bearing joint with a wide range of motion, the hip is susceptible to various kinds of injuries. Hip problems may arise with overuse, acute trauma, degenerative diseases such as arthritis, and sports injuries. These conditions require appropriate treatment, which may be non-surgical or surgical.
Surgical Dislocation of the Hip
Surgical hip dislocation is an orthopedic surgical procedure in which the head of the thigh bone is displaced from the hip socket in the pelvic bone. It gives the surgeon a 360-degree view of the hip joint. Unlike accidental hip dislocation, which may be caused during a traumatic injury, your surgeon can perform the hip dislocation with minimal damage to surrounding healthy tissue.
Minimally Invasive Total Hip Replacement
Hip Fracture Surgery
Surgical correction of a hip fracture is known as hip fracture surgery. Hip fractures involve a break that occurs near the hip in the upper part of the femur or thigh bone. The thigh bone has two bony processes on the upper part - the greater and lesser trochanters. The lesser trochanter projects from the base of the femoral neck on the back of the thigh bone.
