Hip Pain

Don’t let hip pain keep you from doing activities you enjoy. The orthopedic specialists at Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett are dedicated to innovative and minimally invasive treatment for hip conditions.

Injuries like labral tears, impingement and cartilage damage can cause debilitating hip pain. With techniques like arthroscopic hip surgery, many hip injuries can be diagnosed and repaired with outpatient surgeries, allowing you to return to your activities, and to delay or prevent hip replacement.

If hip replacement surgery is needed, our talented orthopedic surgeons strive to provide a minimally invasive experience with better recovery outcomes to get you moving again. Hip replacement surgery removes the arthritic ball of the upper femur (thighbone) as well as the damaged cartilage from the hip socket. The ball is replaced by a metal or ceramic ball that is solidly fixed to a stem inserted into the femur. The socket is replaced with a metal cup, which is fixed to the acetabulum, or socket. The implants are designed to create a new, smoothly functioning joint that prevents painful bone-on-bone contact.

Most often, candidates for hip surgery suffer from:

  • Osteoarthritis, a loss of joint cartilage that limits movement, causes pain and inhibits daily activity
  • Other forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and arthritis that results from a hip injury
  • Damage to the hip such as a hip fracture
