Hold Off on that Hip Replacement Atlanta, GA
hip pain

You are not obligated to have a hip replacement under any circumstances. Although replacing a hip joint is the best option for many patients, there are viable alternatives in most cases. Working with an experienced orthopedic specialist will help you decide how to approach achieving pain relief and better mobility.

Pain Management

Every patient has a different pain threshold. Reduced mobility, discomfort and other symptoms are often deciding factors in patients electing to have hip replacement surgery. However, pain management may be a better alternative.

If your current medications are not providing effective relief, consult with a specialist in orthopedic medicine. Changing your medications and receiving physical therapy may eliminate the need for hip replacement surgery.

Physical Therapy

Tailored physical therapy can help relieve hip pain and improve mobility. For many patients, damage to hip cartilage or a joint is not the only issue. When a load bearing joint is painful, sufferers have a tendency to compensate by walking differently or leaning more toward the opposite side. This habit can actually make the pain worse.

An experienced orthopedic surgeon can identify all the issues that are adding to your hip pain. The right physical therapy plan could help you avoid hip replacement surgery indefinitely. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we will explore all available options to make treatment as minimally-invasive as possible for our patients.

Cartilage Repair Surgery

Repairing the cartilage in the hip is a minimally-invasive surgical option and a viable alternative to replacing the joint. If you are interested in exploring this treatment as a solution to hip pain and reduced mobility, Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians can provide a specialist consultation.

Make hip pain a thing of the past in Atlanta. Call our offices today to book your slot with one of our experienced orthopedic doctors.

Jules F.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
