You deserve proven, minimally invasive techniques to reduce pain and length of recovery for your hip injury. At Onward Orthopedics, we partner with only the best orthopedic surgeons in your area to ensure you receive personalized care specific to your needs, no matter the age. Below is brief overview of common surgical solutions we carry out on a daily basis.
Hip Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure in which a small camera allows the surgeon to see inside your joint. During the procedure, the surgeon will use small tools to repair the bone or joint. The procedure allows for fewer incisions, less scarring, less risk of infection, greater specificity, and, of course, cost savings.
A patient with advanced arthritis who has exhausted all non-surgical treatment options may be an ideal candidate for hip resurfacing. The procedure involves a surgeon trimming and capping the ball of the femur with a smooth metal covering. Because it is less invasive than a full replacement, it offers physically active adults a quicker way to resume their active lifestyles.
With a total hip replacement, the entire hip joint is replaced with an artificial joint (prosthesis). While this procedure is a major alteration, our Onward Orthopedic surgeons can perform it as a minimally invasive surgery for candidates that qualify.
The above list is by no means exhaustive. Your physician will evaluate you personally and seek to understand your goals and your history before recommending which procedure you should undergo.
