Gluteus Medius Repair
Are you looking for an experienced physician who offers minimally invasive treatment for a gluteus medius tear? Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians offers board certified orthopedic surgeons who specialize in hip arthroscopy, an effective procedure that can repair your hip injury with less pain, less scarring and faster recovery time.
The gluteus medius is an abductor muscle on the outside of the hip that helps you stand up properly and walk evenly. When the gluteus medius tears, also known as a rotator cuff tear of the hip, it can detach from the lateral hip bone (or greater trochanter). We use proven arthroscopic techniques to repair gluteus medius tears, which involves sewing the torn part of the gluteus medius tendon back to the bone using tiny suture-anchors. If the tear is too large, an open gluteus medius repair may be required. Regardless of the severity of your hip injury, you can trust that we will take the time to fully explain your condition as well as the treatment options that are available to you. Helping you return to a high-functioning lifestyle is our top priority.
Symptoms of Gluteus Medius Tear
In many cases, gluteus medius tear will produce symptoms that mimic trochanteric bursitis, including persistent pain, weakness and limping. If conservative measures such as physical therapy and injections fail to relieve your symptoms, a gluteus medius tear is often the diagnosis. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we have a staff of top-ranked physicians who understand the complexity of hip injuries as well as the specific treatment solutions to repair them. You can trust that through our state-of-the-art facility and cutting-edge technology, we can relieve your hip discomfort successfully.
