Hip Procedures

Hip Arthroscopy

The shoulder has many potential pain generators, I use patient history, physical exam and advanced imaging studies but determine what is contributing to your pain.  These are a sample of common procedures performed in the hip to alleviate pain, instability and dysfunction:

 

  • labral repair

  • CAM/Pincer Hip Impingement (FAI - femoroacetabular impingement)

  • IT band release

  • Abductor tendon repair

Benefits of arthroscopic over open hip surgery

  • Minimal scars

  • no overnight hospital stay

  • Decreased pain and swelling

  • Improved motion

  • Quicker functional recovery

  • Fewer risks and complications

Hip Arthroplasty/Replacement

  • Total hip arthroplasty (THA)

Some hip disease cannot be treated with arthroscopy alone and requires open surgery.  This is typical of advanced degenerative joint disease or arthritis.  Ask Dr. Kimball what options are best for your hip.
