Hip Surgery in Frisco, TX
Our hip specialists at Performance Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine can perform hip resurfacing and hip replacement surgery should you need it. Our Frisco physical therapy clinic communicates with physicians to plan pre- and post-surgical physical therapy and rehabilitation strategies for all of our patients.
Hip arthroscopy is a surgery where a camera (with small instruments on the end of it) is inserted into the hip joint; doctors can view the joint and properly diagnose any issues.
What is the benefit of hip arthroscopy compared to open surgery?
- Less invasive
- Early rehab
- Accelerated rehab course
- Outpatient procedure
- Smaller incisions
- Early return to sport
What conditions can be treated with hip arthroscopy?
Labral Tears – The labrum is a tissue that helps to support the hip joint. When a labral tear occurs, a piece of this tissue can become pinched in the joint, causing pain and catching sensations.
Loose Bodies – Loose bodies are pieces of cartilage that form within the joint. They look like small marbles floating within the joint space. These loose bodies can become caught within the hip during movements.
Snapping Hip Syndrome – If something is catching within the hip joint, hip arthroscopy can be used to relieve this snapping sound. Hip arthroscopy can be used to perform a psoas tendon release in cases of internal snapping hip syndrome.
Cartilage Damage – When an injury causes a piece of cartilage to break away from the surface of the bone, removing of that piece of cartilage may benefit patients.
Early Arthritis – Surgery would be specifically for impingement (pinching) within the hip joint and the removal of the bone spurs causing this impingement. This is only possible in the very early stages of arthritis and may not offer relief for symptoms.
Hip Replacement Anterior Approach
Many people suffering with arthritis, hip pain, stiffness, or limited hip movement can now choose minimally invasive surgery when hip replacement is chosen as a treatment by the patient and their doctor. The Anterior Approach is a proven technique that is the least invasive and that minimizes pain and recovery times.
Our Other Orthopedic Specialties Include:
