Diagnosing an Arthritic Hip Joint

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.
