Hip Pain Treatment Options
Patients who receive hip pain treatment often find that their overall quality of life is significantly improved. After all, hip conditions can cause many symptoms, including severe pain and limited mobility that can negatively impact an individual’s ability to perform tasks that he or she may have previously taken for granted, such as walking, bending over, or even sitting comfortably.
There are a wide variety of treatments available for patients who suffer from hip pain, and choosing the correct course of action requires the guidance of an experienced physician and depends on the patient’s unique condition. Some common paths to relieving the symptoms of hip pain include:
- Oral and injected medications
- Weight loss
- Physical therapy
When these hip pain treatment strategies fail to alleviate a patient’s symptoms, surgical intervention may be required. At Tampa General Hospital, we are specialists in orthopedic care and have a disease-specific national certification for hip replacement from The Joint Commission. Our goal is to provide our patients with the best possible surgical outcomes, which is why we take a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to orthopedic treatment. We assign a team of orthopedic specialists to care for our patients, including physicians, surgeons, and other care providers, to ensure they have all of the resources they will need to achieve an improved quality of life. We also use the latest technologies, giving us the ability to offer minimally invasive procedures to not only reduce instances of surgical complications but also decrease recovery time.
Patients requiring hip pain treatment can obtain a referral to an orthopedic physician by using our Physician Finder or by calling 1-800-822-DOCS (3627).
