Hip Procedures

Hip inflammation and injury are common in athletes. While healthy hips are normally protected from direct trauma by a network of muscles from the thighs, buttocks, and lower back, injury can occur from chronic overuse of the joint. Chronic overuse of the joint is common in cyclists, runners, baseball players, and golfers.

High contact performance athletes - especially those at the college or professional level - are at a significant risk of developing hip injuries. These injuries can cause debilitating pain, loss of hip function, and premature ending to an athletic career.
