A variety of non-surgical treatments exist for treating hip conditions, and we believe in pursuing non-invasive treatments whenever possible. While some orthopedic conditions necessitate surgery, and while many safe and effective surgical treatments exist, many patients are able to make a full recovery without it. Some non-surgical treatments include braces and casts for fractures, injections to reduce inflammation and improve joint function, and physical therapy to remediate impairment and promote mobility and function. We view every patient as a distinct individual with unique needs – schedule an appointment to meet with our team of physicians and discuss what treatment options are best for you.
