Symptoms of Hip Cartilage Damage
The cartilage that lines your hip joint is a smooth material that helps you move effortlessly. However, if it gets damaged, it cannot repair itself. Injuries to cartilage surfaces of the hip often result in pain, poor joint function and arthritis. In cases of degenerative loss of cartilage, patients may experience deep groin pain, stiffness and loss of motion. Our hip repair treatments can stimulate new cartilage growth and promote successful healing within your hip joint.
