Sports Injuries Affecting the Hip

Overuse injuries can affect the muscles and tendons of the hip. While hip injuries aren’t quite as common as knee or shoulder sports injuries, they do happen.

During sports, the hip joint is less prone to injury than the knee or ankle, but overuse or trauma can sideline even the most experienced athlete.

Advanced Hip Replacement

For patients requiring a total hip replacement, our orthopedic surgeons have extensive experience with the latest technique, called anterior total hip replacement. While traditional hip replacement surgery cuts through muscles of the buttocks or side of the hip, this approach goes from the front of the hip and doesn’t require the surgeon to cut through the muscles that help the hip function. Instead, the surgery is performed through a small incision between two muscles.

This type of hip replacement surgery allows for less muscle damage, faster recoveries, less pain and less risk of dislocation.
