Every year, tens of thousands of people undergo hip replacement surgery. One of the major reasons is the wearing down of the hip joint. This is most often due to the effects of osteoarthritis; however, other health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, bone tumors and avascular necrosis – a condition that causes loss of bone due to insufficient blood supply – can also lead to problems with the hip joint. Keeping your hips in healthy condition can help you avoid this surgery.
For most of us, orthopedic injuries are sudden and traumatic. Whether you're an athlete suffering from a pull or tear, or you've experienced another type of emergency trauma, immediate, high quality care is one of the most important factors determining your ability to recover.
And unfortunately, waiting for long periods of time in an overcrowded ER may not be your best bet in terms of outcome.
While their goal is to get you treated quickly, often with more generalized methods, many orthopedic injuries require much more individualized, specialized treatment than they can provide.
And that's why you can turn to Ortho Sport & Spine in an orthopedic emergency.
