Hip

Located at the intersection of the pelvic bone and the thigh bone (femur), the hip is the body’s largest ball-and-socket joint. While the hips are normally very stable, things like overuse, falls, inflammatory diseases, and congenital conditions can cause problems.

The orthopaedic specialists at UT Southwestern Medical Center offer expert surgical and nonsurgical treatments for a wide range of hip injuries and disorders.
