Lasting Improvements For Hip Treatment

Orthopaedic surgeons at the University of Chicago Medicine provide innovative, comprehensive hip care. Our team uses the latest treatment approaches and technologies, which we tailor to each patient to treat hip pain, instability or disability. We offer non-operative, arthroscopic and joint replacement.

Hip Preservation Treatments

For younger people with hip pain, eventual replacement of the joint is no longer a given. Our orthopaedic surgeons are skilled in the latest advancements in hip arthroscopy for soft tissue tears, dysplasia and abnormalities which can help patients with non-arthritic hip pain. This can relieve pain and preserve the natural joints in order to delay or avoid total hip replacement.

Hip preservation at UChicago Medicine focuses on the following tailored treatment for patients under 50 with hip pain:

  • Arthroscopy

  • Femoral and acetabular osteotomy (surgery to reshape the hip joint)

  • Cartilage restoration

  • Hip resurfacing

  • Hip replacement (arthoplasty)

Hip Replacement

At UChicago Medicine, orthopaedic surgeons are experts in hip arthroplasty and use less-invasive techniques to reconstruct diseased hip joints or bones. We are committed to providing innovative and effective treatments for patients who are suffering from severe hip pain or disability. We are extremely skilled in helping those experiencing discomfort due to:

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Rheumatoid arthritis

  • Traumatic injury

  • Failed joint replacements

  • Deformities

  • Cancer

We perform a large volume of joint replacements every year. Our experience and expertise contributes to our patients’ excellent outcomes and low rate of complications.

In many cases, hip replacement surgery is performed with robotic-arm assisted technology, a technique that improves the accuracy of hip implant placement.

Recover Faster, Walk Sooner

Many of our patients are up and walking within a day of surgery. This quick recovery is due to a multifaceted program for hip arthroplasty that includes less invasive surgery, specialized anesthetic techniques, multi-modal pain management and rapid-recovery physical therapy.
