Hip problems can interfere with your daily life, making routine tasks like tying a shoe or getting up from a chair stiff and painful.
Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of hip pain in those older than 50. Younger athletes may experience hip pain caused by overuse injuries, such as iliotibial band syndrome, hip impingement and tendinitis.
At Mills-Peninsula Medical Center, our orthopedic experts offer a wide spectrum of care options to restore mobility and reduce pain. We can successfully resolve some conditions with physical therapy or pain-relieving corticosteriod or viscosupplementation injections. For other situations, like hip fractures and severe arthritis, we offer the latest in hip resurfacing and hip replacement.
Hip Replacement Class is a free, hour and a half class about what to expect before,
during and after your hospital stay. These classes are specifically designed for people
who are going to undergo surgery at the Mills-Peninsula Medical Center.
