Hip Surgery in Jacksonville
The doctors at Coastal Orthopedic Associates are experts in the types of hip surgeries available as well as which to use for your specific case. A normal hip joint has a cushioning surface that helps the bones glide without friction or pain. As you age, your hip joint experiences a collective wear and tear absorbed by the cartilage lining. Once the thigh bone (femur) begins to rub against the pelvis, inflammation can lead to increased discomfort, chronic hip pain and/or osteoarthritis.
When pain cannot be managed with non-surgical interventions, an orthopedic surgeon can best determine which hip surgery is indicated to include:
NOTE: Most hip pain can be managed using non-surgical treatments, such as pain medications, hot and cold treatments, weight reduction, physical therapy, cortisone injections or assistive walking devices.
