  • Osteoarthritis of the Hip Osteoarthritis of the Hip

    Osteoarthritis, also called degenerative joint disease, is the most common form of arthritis. It occurs most often in the elderly. This disease affects the tissue covering the ends of bones in a joint called cartilage. In osteoarthritis, the cartilage becomes damaged and worn out, causing pain, swelling, stiffness and restricted movement in the affected joint.

  • Hip Injury Hip Injury

    The hip joint is prone to several types of injuries.

  • Hip Ligament Injuries Hip Ligament Injuries

    Specific movements of your hip may be performed. The exact location and severity of the pain are essential to identify the type and extent of the damage. Your doctor may order an X-ray, CT-scan or MRI to confirm the diagnosis.

  • Hip Fracture Hip Fracture

    A hip fracture is a break that occurs near the hip in the upper part of the femur or thighbone. The thighbone has two bony processes on the upper part - the greater and lesser trochanters. The lesser trochanter projects from the base of the femoral neck on the back of the thighbone. Hip fractures can occur either due to a break in the femoral neck, in the area between the greater and lesser trochanter or below the lesser trochanter.

  • Hip Labral Tear Hip Labral Tear

    A hip labral tear is an injury to the labrum, the cartilage that surrounds the outside rim of your hip joint socket.

  • Hip Dislocation Hip Dislocation

    Hip dislocation can be caused by injuries from motor vehicle accidents or severe falls.

  • Hip Bursitis Hip Bursitis

    Hip bursitis is a painful condition caused by the inflammation of a bursa in the hip. Bursae are fluid-filled sacs present in the joints between bone and soft tissue to reduce friction and provide cushioning during movement.

  • Hip Instability Hip Instability

    Injury or damage to these structures can lead to a condition called hip instability when the joint becomes unstable.

  • Femoroacetabular Impingement Femoroacetabular Impingement

    Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition characterized by excessive friction in the hip joint from the presence of bony irregularities. These cause pain and decreased range of hip motion.

  • Gluteus Tendon Tear Gluteus Tendon Tear

    The gluteal muscles (situated in the buttocks) are necessary for the stability and movement of the hip joints. The tendons of two gluteal muscles (gluteus medius and gluteal minimus) are attached at the outer hip region and are often called the “rotator cuff of the hip.” These tendons may be subject to injury or tearing due to various reasons. Since these gluteal muscles are involved in abduction (movement of your leg away from the midline of the body), the tears are also called abductor tendon tears.

  • Hip Abductor Tears Hip Abductor Tears

    Hip abductors are a major group of muscles found in the buttocks. It includes the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, gluteus minimus, and tensor fascia lata muscles.

  • Hip Pain Hip Pain

    Hip pain, one of the common complaints, may not always be felt precisely over the hip joint rather in and around the hip joint. The cause for pain is multifactorial and the exact position of your hip pain suggests the probable cause or underlying condition causing it.

  • Developmental Dysplasia Developmental Dysplasia

    Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) or hip dysplasia is a condition that is seen in infants and young children because of developmental problems in the hip joint. The femur (thighbone) partially or completely slips out of the hip socket leading to dislocation at the hip joint. It is most common in the first-born baby with a family history of the disorder.

  • Groin Injuries in Athletes Groin Injuries in Athletes

    Groin injuries are injuries sustained by athletes during sports activity. Groin injuries comprise about 2 to 5 percent of all sports injuries. The most common kind of groin injury is a groin strain or a pulled groin muscle. Typical groin injuries vary based on athlete’s gender, age, and sports, with most common groin injuries occurring in certain sports such as football with a prevalence rate as high as 12-16%.

  • Hip Osteonecrosis Hip Osteonecrosis

    Hip osteonecrosis occurs due to disruption of the blood supply to the highest part of the thigh bone (femoral head). Due to lack of nourishment, the bone tissue of the femoral head dies and gradually collapses, which may further lead to degeneration of the underlying cartilage.
