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 inflammation of the bursa (bursitis) or gluteal tendonitis.
In the Sutter Health network, more than 300 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, including hip replacement surgery in a supportive outpatient ambulatory surgery center setting.
