If you are hobbling around due to a hip condition, our team of Brookline hip surgeons has the right course of treatment for you. Based upon the condition of your hip joint, you and one of our specialists have several treatment options from which to choose. An osteotomy is a procedure where either the head of the thigh bone or the socket is cut and realigned to take pressure off of the hip joint. This procedure is used only rarely to treat osteoarthritis of the hip. In hip resurfacing, the damaged bone and cartilage in the acetabulum (hip socket) is removed and replaced with a metal shell. The head of the femur, however, is not removed, but instead capped with a smooth metal covering. For total hip replacement, your doctor will remove both the damaged acetabulum and femoral head, and then position new metal, plastic or ceramic joint surfaces to restore full mobility to your hip.
When it comes to getting the right Brookline hip surgeon, trust our consortium of expert orthopedists. This experienced orthopedic office leads the way in innovative orthopedic care. Our exceptional team of doctors, physician’s assistants, and acupuncturist provide state-of-the-art care that will get you back to work and doing all of your favorite activities quickly and thoroughly.
