If you have hip pain, a hip injury or a hip deformity, it is essential to get the right diagnosis and treatment. Orthopedic hip specialists at Texas Orthopedic Hospital have the expertise to accurately diagnose and treat hip problems in adolescents and adults.

Injury, wear-and-tear and certain diseases can result in the wearing away of the cartilage tissue, causing painful rubbing of bones. Hip replacement surgeries have long been the choice of treatment, where the damaged parts of the joint are removed and replaced with a prosthesis. However, in young active patients, the prostheses are highly prone to wear-and-tear, and the need for repeat surgery. Hip preservation are treatments that overcome the limitations and can prevent the need for joint replacement.

The Hip Preservation Center at Texas Orthopedic Hospital includes a team of orthopedic specialists, musculoskeletal radiologists and physical therapists, all with a specific interest in hip preservation.
