hip pain

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.

If you have symptoms of a gluteus medius tear, contact us today to schedule a consultation with one of our respected sports medicine physicians in Atlanta. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are passionate about staying at the forefront of sports medicine.

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.
