Minimally Invasive Hip Surgery Performed by Fellowship-Trained Surgeons at New Jersey Sports Medicine in Freehold, NJ
Hip surgery can relieve pain, improve mobility, and allow a patient to resume daily activities that were previously difficult or impossible due to hip problems. At New Jersey Sports Medicine in Freehold, NJ, we may recommend hip surgery for a patient whose symptoms do not respond sufficiently to nonsurgical treatments like physical therapy, medications, and assistive walking devices. If persistent hip pain or stiffness is reducing your quality of life, we may be able to help.
You can count on receiving highly specialized treatment at New Jersey Sports Medicine. Founded in 2007, our practice focuses on bringing cutting-edge advances in the fields of orthopedics and sports medicine to Freehold, New Jersey. Our board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeons share a philosophy of practicing conservative orthopedic medicine, which means that we generally view surgery as a last resort in favor of nonsurgical treatment. We are dedicated to working with each patient to achieve effective results using the most conservative approach possible. For instance, some patients who elect hip surgery may be candidates for arthroscopy.
Arthroscopic hip surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows a surgeon to view and access the interior of the hip joint without making a large incision. Instead, a tiny camera and specialized surgical instruments are inserted through one or more small incisions. This type of surgical approach may be appropriate for addressing:
- Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)
- Labral tears (torn cartilage)
- Loose cartilage fragments
When used for diagnosing and treating hip conditions, arthroscopy offers a number of advantages over traditional hip surgery. These include less pain and stiffness, a faster recovery, minimal scarring, and a lower risk of surgical complications, such as blood clots and infections.
New Jersey Sports Medicine offers arthroscopic hip surgery as well as a full range of conservative and other surgical treatments for fractures, arthritis, and other injuries and conditions affecting the hip joint.
