What is it and how is it treated?
What is Hip Arthritis?
Hip arthritis is a common orthopedic condition, especially in the older population. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that causes inflammation (swelling) and damage to the hip joint which causes pain, stiffness, and loss of movement. The hip is what is known as a “ball and socket” joint and osteoarthritis in the hip can cause the ball and socket to grind together and damage the joint.
If you have osteoarthritis of the hip the common symptoms can include:
- Stiffness when standing or sitting
- Decreased range of motion in the hip
Symptoms may range from very mild to severe but treating hip arthritis in its early stages can prevent pain and symptoms from getting worse. At OrthoNeuro, our Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeons have helped thousands of patients with hip arthritis live active and healthy lives using the latest non-surgical and surgical procedures.
Treatment Options for Arthritis of the Hip
Hip arthritis is effectively treated using non-surgical treatment options. The specialists at OrthoNeuro create treatment plans based on your lifestyle and goals. These treatment plans may consist of any combination of the following non-surgical treatment options:
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications

Surgery is only recommended if hip arthritis does not respond to non-surgical treatment options. The Board Certified Joint Replacement Specialists at OrthoNeuro are experts at performing Total Hip Replacements.
