Leading Hip Care for a More Active Life

Whether you’re jogging on the treadmill or dancing to your favorite song, your hips make many of the things you love to do possible. When the things that once came easily start to become painful or uncomfortable, turn to us. As a leading destination for total hip replacements and other hip treatment options, we’ll help you restore and find relief.

A sudden pain in your hip or an ache when you walk can be a sign that your joints need some extra care and attention. Your team of experienced orthopedic hip specialists is equipped with the latest diagnostic technology that helps us find the root cause of your hip pain and build a treatment plan that works best for you. 

Everyone feels pain differently, but there are some common signs that you may need treatment, including: 

  • Difficulty Walking, Bending or Climbing Stairs
  • Grating or Crunching Feeling While Moving
  • Negative Side Effects From Hip Medications
  • Persistent Pain, Even After Pain Medication or Physical Therapy
  • Soreness While Resting
  • Stiffness in Hips 

Whatever your symptoms, you’ve got a whole team by your side. We believe that your care should look after every part of you, which is why we aim to guide you at each turn with helpful education and resources. From nutritional advice to weight-loss motivation and support, your whole-person wellness is our priority. 

Hip surgery can help you find mobility, comfort and stability at any age. As you move through life, your hip joints can wear down and start feeling painful. When that pain holds you back from doing the things you love, a hip repair or replacement surgery might be the right choice for you. With an expert team by your side and a dedicated Care Coordinator to manage the details, you’ll always find the support you need. Surgeries we offer include: 

  • Hemi (Partial) Hip Replacement (Hemiarthroplasty) 
  • Hip Resurfacing 
  • Total Hip Replacement (Arthroplasty)

To help you recover faster and with less scarring, our surgeons use minimally invasive procedures and an anterior approach whenever possible. This lowers your risk of complications and infection by using smaller incisions made on the front of your hip rather than the side, meaning fewer muscles are affected. U.S. News & World Report recognized our institute as a leading provider of hip replacement surgery in the Central Florida region. Lean on us for the highest standard of care. 

Our network of care is also equipped with the Mako® Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System. This advanced technology helps us place your prosthesis (implant) with greater accuracy, which can help it last longer, lower your risk of dislocation and get you up and moving faster. We know you want to get back to your normal routine as soon as possible — you may even be able to walk again on the same day as your surgery.

Running, walking or even just sitting down, your hips do a lot for you. They need the best possible care. Our orthopedic specialists have substantial experience and expertise in treating a wide range of hip conditions, including:

  • Acetabular Fractures (Hip Fractures)
  • Arthritis, Including Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis 
  • Bone Infections (Osteomyelitis) 
  • Chronic Pain
  • Dislocations
  • Hip Deformities
  • Hip Joint Tumors
  • Infections
  • Malunion (Fractures That Heal Incorrectly)
  • Nonunion (Fractures That Heal Incompletely)
  • Sprains
  • Tendonitis

Over time, your joints can wear down and become stiff and sore. This can often lead to arthritis and other wear-and-tear conditions. To help you live an active life with less pain and more movement, your team will work closely with you to tailor a care plan to your needs. This may include everything from medication and nutritional guidance to self-care methods for stress relief, like breathing exercises and meditation. We know that hip pain hurts more than just your hips. Trust us to care for every part of you.
 

You might think of a hip fracture (acetabular fracture) as something that only happens later in life. But a fall, car accident or condition that weakens your bones can lead to this injury at any age. Help is here: Within our network, experienced trauma specialists have the knowledge and skills needed to care for rare and complex fractures. Signs that you may have a hip fracture include: 

  • Being Unable to Stand or Put Weight on Your Hip
  • Bruising, Swelling, and Stiffness in Your Hip
  • Muscle Spasms
  • One Leg Turning Outward or Appearing Shorter
  • Severe Pain

To restore your mobility and resolve your pain, your orthopedic team may recommend a surgical procedure like a hip replacement. We use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible, helping you get home quicker after your procedure. Your recovery will also be supported by our expert physical therapists. No matter what, you’ll find guidance, education and compassion from day one.
