Your hips play an integral role in your ability to perform even the simplest of daily tasks, such as shopping at the grocery store and bathing. Such activities can be difficult to complete if you are experiencing pain or stiffness in your hip joint. While conservative treatments for hip damage should always be considered first, they aren’t always effective. In which case, you can rely on the specialists at Premier Bone and Joint Centers for effective hip replacement surgery. Our team at our satellite clinic in Torrington, Wyoming, are both board certified and fellowship trained, so you can rest assured we’ll get you back to doing the things you love as quickly and safely as possible.
What Causes Hip Pain?
The hip joint is a ball-and-socket type joint consisting of the femoral head and the acetabulum. Serving as a barrier between the two is a thin tissue referred to as the synovial membrane. When this layer of tissue deteriorates, it can lead to hip pain. There are a number of conditions that can cause this to occur and ultimately warrant hip replacement surgery. These include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
When you visit our Torrington clinic, one of our orthopedic specialists will assess your condition and determine if hip replacement surgery is the best form of treatment.
