Some hip pain can be treated non-surgically. After diagnosing your hip pain, our comprehensive team of hip experts can offer non-surgical treatment options such as physical therapy and injections, including an advanced treatment where fluoroscopic-guided technology is used to assist injection therapy.
to get you back to the activities you enjoy.
Surgical hip procedures we offer include:
The hip joint is made up of a ball and socket. The socket is made of bone and cartilage, and the ball is the top of the thighbone, also known as the femoral head.
During hip replacement surgery (also called hip arthroplasty), an orthopedic surgeon replaces the damaged ball and socket with new and durable artificial synthetic parts that mimic the natural joint.
In minimally invasive hip surgery, your surgeon uses smaller incisions and cuts fewer muscles around the hip area than in a traditional total hip replacement. OhioHealth has expert orthopedic surgeons trained in the use of minimally invasive techniques that can lead to quicker recovery times and less pain.
Your surgeon will talk to you about the procedure that is right for you.
Research shows that patients who received education about their procedure and recovery before having a hip replacement have better outcomes than those who don’t. Our Joint Class is available to you and your caregiver at no cost. We want you to have the best experience and recovery possible. Ask your physician about signing up for a joint class.
OhioHealth provides enhanced care for patients with hip fractures. Treatment for hip fractures usually includes surgery. Our goal is to repair your fractured hip within 24 hours of arriving at one of our hospitals. We’ll then coordinate care with your therapists to get you up and moving as soon as possible because this helps you recover faster.
Your fracture management team will include a medical doctor, an orthopedic surgeon, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, social workers and patient navigators.
OhioHealth offers balance classes designed to prevent unexpected falls that can cause hip fractures and to reduce the fear of falling.View Classes
