Hip and Knee Pain, Injury, and Surgery
People of varying ages and lifestyles are susceptible to dozens of different hip and knee problems. Osteoarthritis, the loss of cartilage in the hip or knee joint from wear and tear, and hip fractures are common among baby boomers and seniors. Young athletes, meanwhile, can suffer a meniscus cartilage or anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear, common injuries that sideline them for months.
In whatever form of injury or disorder, hip pain and knee pain slow us down and significantly affect our lifestyles.
At Orthopedic Associates of Port Huron, numerous physicians have devoted extensive training and research to evaluating and treating hip and knee injuries and disorders. Technological advancements in recent years have allowed physicians to take a less invasive approach in treating patients for diseases such as hip arthritis and hip bursitis. As a result, patients are in better hands today. Arthroscopic techniques and joint replacement surgery, two common treatment methods, offer better outcomes for patients, relieving their pain and helping them return to the activities they love.
