Hip arthroscopy is a surgical procedure performed through very small incisions to diagnose and treat various hip conditions including removal of torn cartilage or bone chips, repair a torn labrum, removal of bone spurs or extra bone growths, removal of part of the inflamed synovium and repair of fractures or torn ligaments.
Hip preservation surgeries for severe hip pain and dysfunction in young and active patients have been found beneficial, and avoid or delay the need for hip replacement surgery.
Hip preservation surgery includes various techniques such as periacetabular osteotomy, surgical hip dislocation, femoral osteotomy and hip arthroscopy.
Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition where there is too much friction in the hip joint from bony irregularities causing pain and decreased range of hip motion. The femoral head and acetabulum rub against each other creating damage and pain to the hip joint.
A gluteus medius tear is a condition characterized by severe strain on the gluteus medius muscle that results in partial or complete rupture of the muscle. The tear or rupture of the muscle can result in pain, improper gait, and disability. Treatment includes surgical and non-surgical methods and the selection depends on the extent of the injury and the lifestyle of the patient.
Injuries to the hamstring group of muscles can range from a minor strain to a complete tear. Tears from the pelvis are known as proximal hamstring avulsion. Initial treatment for hamstring injuries involves rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE protocol); all assist in controlling pain and swelling, and a serious injury may require surgery.
Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that utilizes the body’s natural healing mechanism to treat various conditions. It is used in the treatment of various soft tissue (muscle, ligaments and tendons) as well as bone-related injuries. Stem cell therapy have shown significant results in restoring mobility and improving the quality of life.
