Hip Conditions we specialize in

Many hip joint problems are related to arthritis. Other joint problems can be caused by osteonecrosis, and cartilage tears. Whenever possible, our physicians treat joint disorders through non-surgical options such as medication, therapy and splinting.

There are a variety of hip conditions and disorders that our specialists treat. If you do not see a condition below, please contact our office and we will answer any questions you may have.

Hip Pain

The ball and socket hip joint is important because it stabilizes and moves the trunk or core. An accident, injury or medical condition can cause hip pain that makes performing everyday movements and activities difficult. An appointment with a Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates (CONA) hip specialist should be made if a serious accident or injury causes hip pain or non-accident/noninjury related hip pain does not go away on its own.

Hip Arthritis
Hip arthritis is a common condition that inflames and damages hip bone, cartilage and soft tissue. Mild hip arthritis can be aggravating and uncomfortable. Moderate to severe hip arthritis can make it difficult to perform everyday movements and decrease the quality of life. Because hip arthritis is a chronic condition, treatment is centered around slowing down or stopping disease progression. An appointment with a Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates (CONA) hip specialist should be made at the first sign of hip arthritis symptoms.

Hip Fracture
A hip fracture is a break in the upper part of the thigh bone (femur) near its articulation with the pelvis. A hip fracture may make it difficult to walk, bear weight, stand or sit. An appointment with a Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates (CONA) hip specialist should be made as soon as possible after an accident or injury causes hip fracture symptoms.

Hip Bursitis
Bursae are fluid-filled sacs that lie between joint bones and soft tissues. The two hip bursae are located on the hip bone point (the greater trochanter) and the inside of the hip near the groin. Hip bursitis is inflammation of the hip bursae. An appointment with a Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates (CONA) hip specialist should be made when hip bursitis symptoms are experienced.

Quadriceps Tendon Tear
The quadriceps tendon is important because it attaches the large quadriceps muscles to the knee cap (patella). The quadriceps muscles, quadriceps tendon, and patella tendon work together to stabilize the knee and straighten the leg. A quadriceps tendon tear is a serious injury. An appointment with a Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates (CONA) specialist should be made as soon as possible.

Hip surgery is suggested only when all other options have been exhausted. Our Hip Center Experts are dedicated to treating patients with the most effective course of treatment available.

Common Hip Treatments

Quadriceps Tendon Repair
The quadriceps tendon plays an important role in stabilizing the knee and straightening the leg. A complete quadriceps tendon tear makes it difficult to walk or even stand. The tear does not heal on its own and surgical intervention is usually recommended. A Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates (CONA) specialist performs a quadriceps tendon repair to treat the tear and reduce symptoms so the patient can return to normal activities.
