Hip Pain Treatment
Suffering from hip pain? Let us help. OSS Health is certified by the Joint Commission specifically for Hip Replacement Surgery. We have also been named as one of the Top 100 Hospitals for Joint Replacement in the country by Healthgrades.
Don’t let hip pain limit your ability to do the activities you enjoy! With the medical technology available today, it is no longer necessary to endure the pain and live with the limitation of activities caused by deteriorating hip joints.
By closely evaluating each patient, OSS Health’s Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeons can prescribe the right treatment protocol, from Physical Therapy and injections to arthroscopic surgery or other interventions. We use a team approach, with the surgeon, Physician Assistant and Physical Therapist working together to relieve pain, restore range of motion and improve muscle strength and mobility.

Osteoarthritis of the Hip
Hip arthritis is one of the most common orthopaedic conditions, especially in the older population. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that causes inflammation of the bones and soft tissues of the joints which causes pain and loss of movement in the hip. As this condition progresses, the cartilage in the hip joint becomes more worn and the bones within the hip can begin to rub together. This can also increase pain and stiffness as well as cause the formation of bone spurs within the joint.
Rheumatoid Arthritis of the Hip
Rheumatoid arthritis of the hip/knee, which is often referred to simply as hip/knee arthritis, is the most common form of autoimmune arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a condition that causes inflammation of the bones and soft tissues of the joints which causes the bones of the hip/knee to rub together, which results in pain and decreased function of the hip/knee. As the condition progresses, more cartilage is lost and more bone is exposed. Once the cartilage has completely worn away the bones of the hip/knee can begin to rub together causing increased pain and the formation of bone spurs within the joint.
A joint dislocation occurs when one or more of the bones within a joint is pushed forcefully out of its correct anatomical position and is common in the shoulder, elbow hip or knee. Most joint dislocations are caused by either an accident or a direct blow to the joint. It is important to seek immediate medical attention after a dislocation occurs as other trauma to the joint, ligaments or soft tissue may also have occurred. Attempting to relocate the joint yourself is dangerous and should not be attempted.
Avascular Necrosis of the Hip
Stress Fracture of the Femur
The pelvis is a bony structure that connects the trunk and the legs. The pelvis helps balance and support the trunk and contains and protects the intestines, bladder, and internal sex organs. Pelvic fractures are usually caused by motor vehicle accidents, high falls, and weak bones due to osteoporosis.
Total Hip Replacement
Total Hip Replacement is a procedure that removes the bone and cartilage of the hip that has been damaged due to arthritis and replaces them with metal and plastic components. These components mimic the anatomy and function of a healthy hip so that you can return to activities without the pain caused by arthritis. The procedure is one of the most well-known and most effective in orthopaedic surgery because it dramatically improves hip pain and quality of life.
Revision Hip Arthroplasty
Revision joint arthroplasty (or Joint Replacement) is sometimes needed to correct an issue or complication from a previous Joint Replacement procedure. One of the most common reasons it is needed is to address osteoarthritis in another area of the joint. For instance, if you have had a Partial Knee Replacement and several years later osteoarthritis is affecting the other compartment of the knee, this compartment of the knee may now be replaced as well.
