Our expert physicians use the latest technology in the diagnosis and treatment of hip disorders, injuries, and joint replacement.

When Should You See a Hip Doctor?

The hip is a complicated mechanism made up of two bones, the pelvis and the femur (the thighbone). Many powerful muscles connect to and cross by the hip joint, making it possible for us to accelerate quickly during actions like walking, running and jumping. Hip pain can stem from a number of causes, including osteoarthritis, trauma-related injuries like a bad fall, or other hip disorders.

If you exhibit symptoms of hip pain, such as intense pain, sudden swelling in the hip area, inability to move your leg or hip, or deformities of the hip joint, seek immediate medical attention.

Due to the hip's complexity, hip pain can originate in many different parts of the joint. Learning the anatomy of your hip will better enable you to pinpoint your potential hip condition and work with your doctor to keep it from limiting your life.

How Resurgens Diagnoses Hip Pain

Pain-free mobility in the hip is important to so many of our daily activities, so when a patient experiences hip pain, Resurgens Hip Center works to accurately identify the cause of the pain and degree of severity in order to properly treat it.

In order to diagnose your specific condition and create the right treatment plan for you, our expert physicians perform a thorough evaluation, reviewing the patient's history, examination, and diagnostic imaging studies to determine what measures should be taken.

Resurgens offers a range of diagnostic procedures for hip pain, including hip joint arthroscopy, to help uncover the exact location and severity of your condition.

Non-Surgical and Surgical Solutions for Hip Pain

Treatment solutions will depend on the location and severity of your specific condition, but it is always the goal of our physicians to provide treatment options that work for your lifestyle and situation. Resurgens physicians consult with each patient to determine the best treatment options to help you reach your goals, whether through non-surgical solutions or surgical procedures. Learn more about our expertise in hip procedures here.

In addition to non-surgical options, our hip therapists have advanced training and expertise in rehabilitation and work closely with our hip physicians to ensure that each patient is returned to the highest level of function and pain relief possible.

For more severe hip conditions, you may require hip surgery. Resurgens hip experts will ensure that appropriate conservative measures have been attempted prior to surgical intervention. If it's determined that a surgical solution is required, our team is trained in the latest techniques in hip surgical solutions, including total joint replacement.


We know how life-changing a hip surgical procedure can be. Our physicians answer your most pressing questions so you know what to expect during a visit and throughout your recovery. See our FAQ on hip surgical procedures to find out more.
