HIP & KNEE

HIP

Our specialty-trained hip doctors are trained in assessing, diagnosing, and treating hip injuries and conditions.

Hip pain can be caused by a wide range of issues, from a progressive condition that has developed over time, such as bursitis and arthritis, to an acute injury, such as a fracture or dislocation.

If left untreated, cases involving inflammatory or degenerative diseases, like hip bursitis and hip osteoarthritis, can cause severe pain and immobility, and surgery may be introduced as a viable option for relieving pain and restoring mobility. While hip pain can be the result of trauma or acute injury, it most commonly arises in conjunction with an orthopaedic condition that has developed over time.

It may be time to seek treatment from a hip specialist if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms of hip pain:

  • Joint pain felt in the front of the hip, along the outside of the hip, in the groin, or over the buttock area Discomfort and swelling in the thigh and knee
  • Joint inflammation or muscle spasms in the hip (especially if causing fluid buildup in the hip joint)
  • Inability to walk without pain
  • Inability to bend or rotate the hip without pain
  • Soreness or a throbbing sensation while sleeping or resting
  • Limping or the inability to walk comfortably on the affected side

KNEE

Our specialty-trained knee doctors are experts in assessing, diagnosing, and treating knee injuries and conditions. The knee is a complex hinge joint, connecting the upper leg (femur) to the bones of the lower leg (tibia and fibula) through a series of muscles, ligaments, and tendons posterior to the kneecap (or patella).

Knee pain can be the result of a wide range of injuries and conditions. Whether caused by a traumatic injury, such as a sports injury, dislocation, or ligamentous tear; an overuse injury, such as runner’s knee; or a condition that has developed over time, such as arthritis or osteoarthritis, knee pain should never be ignored or overlooked.

In some cases, and if not identified early on, conditions like knee osteoarthritis may progress and worsen, causing severe pain and, in extreme cases, necessitating knee surgery to relieve discomfort and restore mobility. Similarly, tears to the ligaments of the knee (the meniscus, ACL, MCL, or PCL) often require reconstructive surgery to repair the damaged ligament.

Consult a knee specialist if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • A popping or snapping noise in the knee during activity
  • The sensation of your knee “giving out” while walking, running, jumping, or turning
  • Severe joint pain, whether in the knee, behind the knee, or within the kneecap
  • Inability to bend or move the knee
  • Inability to walk without pain
  • Swelling localized to the knee joint or calf area
