Diagnosing hip and thigh injuries and disease begins with a thorough medical history and physical examination.
Arthroscopes, tiny instruments with lighting and magnifying capabilities, are sometimes used to get a better look at the injury and determine a treatment plan.
Our specialists will find the best treatment plan for your injuries that also meets your lifestyle. Our doctors are skilled at discerning when nonsurgical treatments will heal the injury or when surgery is the best course of treatment.
Most hip and thigh injuries are treated with a combination of rest, ice, analgesics, therapy exercises, and manual therapy. Our doctors may outfit you with compression sleeves, braces, or assistive devices.
