A variety of hip problems can develop over time, including arthritis, fractures, inflammation, muscle strains, and even cancer. Common hip complaints include groin pain, clicking and popping, pain with certain movements, pain that moves into our thighs, and difficulty bending.
OrthoAtlanta physicians will first explore nonsurgical treatment options such as physical therapy and injections whenever possible, as conservative treatment options can be effective at treating many hip-related conditions. In those cases where hip surgery is necessary, we offer the latest, state-of-the-art procedures including hip arthroscopy (hip replacement), hip resurfacing and direct anterior approach hip replacement. Appropriate for many patients, direct anterior approach total hip arthroplasty, also referred to as “front” hip replacement is a total hip replacement procedure that is considered more conservative and is a minimally-invasive alternative to the traditional approach to hip replacement. Direct anterior approach arthroplasty can typically result in quicker times to heal and with less post-operative restrictions.
