Whether getting out of bed in the morning or taking a trip to the store, pain shouldn’t be part of your daily life. If hip pain is reducing your mobility and forcing you to sacrifice your lifestyle, it’s time to seek help.
The experienced orthopedic specialists at BCH have the expertise to determine the treatment path that’s right for you. Our orthopedic program earned a Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission, the nation’s largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care, for demonstrating compliance with national standards for quality and safety. We are one of only five Colorado hospitals to have earned this distinction.
We provide comprehensive orthopedic services that support you from diagnosis through complete recovery.
You may not need surgery for pain relief. Anti-inflammatory medication can reduce swelling in the hip joint. Physical therapy and prescribed exercise can strengthen your joints and relieve pain. In many cases, this will relieve the symptoms and surgery will not be required.
If your symptoms are more serious, your physician may recommend surgery. Boulder Community Health Orthopedics offers the latest innovative procedures to reduce pain and restore mobility.
Hip Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive technique that can diagnose and repair soft tissue injuries. Repairing damaged tissue early can preserve the bones in your hip joint, improve your range of motion and may prevent more serious problems from developing in the future.
Hip Resurfacing is a procedure where the damaged head of the thighbone (femur) is reshaped and capped with a metal implant and the hip socket is fitted with a metal prosthesis. Hip resurfacing is a good alternative when non-surgical treatments fail to restore the health of your hip joint.
Total Hip Replacement involves replacing damaged parts of the hip socket (pelvic acetabulum) and thighbone (femur) with an artificial hip joint, also known as a prosthesis or implant. Replacement surgery may offer the best treatment option for long-term improvement for the hip joint when other treatments have proven inadequate.
