Hip pain may be caused by a variety of problems including arthritis, injuries, compressed nerves, torn cartilage, and other problems. Patients generally experience pain in the groin, thigh, inside or outside the hip joint, and/or buttocks.
Common causes of hip pain include:
The Fort Myers orthopedic doctors at OSSWF may recommend hip arthroplasty, a minimally invasive procedure to diagnose and treat painful conditions that do not respond to nonsurgical treatment.
Osteoarthritis is the number one reason for hip replacement surgery. Joint replacement removes the damaged parts of the hip and replaces them with prostheses or artificial joint parts, to relieve pain, regain lost mobility, and allow the patient to enjoy health-enhancing activities and exercise. Joint replacement surgery may also be recommended for rheumatoid arthritis, osteonecrosis, injury to the hip joint, and bone tumors.
