Osteoarthritis is one of the common causes of hip deterioration. If you are experiencing persistent pain in your hip that will not go away, it’s time to have a conversation with your doctor followed by a thorough examination. At the Leone Center for Orthopedic Care, a diagnosis is made for every patient based on a personal history, a comprehensive physical examination and state-of-the-art imaging. Depending on your diagnosis, treatment options can include a combination of physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medications, or in advanced cases, joint replacement surgery. The following video will describe in more detail how we diagnose an arthritic hip joint.
