Enjoy more active, pain-free days
Chronic hip pain can interfere with work or play—but it doesn’t have to. If joint-related pain keeps you from doing what you love, visit a specialist to help relieve your symptoms, with or without surgery.
How a Hip Specialist Can Help
MedStar Orthopaedic Institute experts diagnose and treat the full range of hip joint conditions. We offer non-surgical, minimally invasive, and standard treatments for conditions that cause hip pain or affect mobility, such as:
- Arthritis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis
- Avascular necrosis—temporary or permanent loss of blood supply to the bones in the hip
- Full or partial dislocation (sublaxation)
- Generalized hip pain
- Injuries with instability, welling or pain
- Problems with a previously replaced hip
- Tumors in the hip bones
With advanced imaging - and insights about your symptoms and goals - we can pinpoint the cause of your hip pain and recommend a treatment plan to help you enjoy more pain free-days.
Many patients find relief from hip pain without surgery. Our experts will discuss all your treatment options with you. Watch now to figure out how to know the time is right for a hip replacement.
Then, we will personalize your care plan based on your lifestyle, needs, and goals. For maximum pain management without surgery, we may recommend a combination of treatments such as:
- Anti-inflammatory or pain medication
- Arthroscopy to “clean up” damaged joint tissue
- Corticosteroid or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections
- Exercise and physical therapy
- Radiofrequency ablation
- Therapeutic ultrasound
- Weight loss
MedStar Orthopaedic Institute joint surgeons are experts in minimally invasive and traditional techniques. If you need hip surgery, we will help you understand what to expect before, during, and after your procedure. Using leading-edge robotic and image-guided technologies, we offer the full range of procedures, including:
- Anterior hip replacement
- Corrections or replacements of formerly replaced joints
- Traditional hip replacement
- Outpatient hip replacement surgery - patients go home the same day as the procedure
- Revision surgery for failed or loosened hip replacements
Renowned for surgical excellence, our specialists ten to the joint health of athletes who play for the Baltimore Ravens, Baltimore Orioles, Washington Wizards, Washington Capitals, and U.S. Lacrosse.
Robotic-Assisted Hip Replacement
Innovative robotic technologies do not replace surgical expertise but do help us give you the most precise outcomes. Using the latest technology, our hip surgeons get a better view of your joint, bones, muscles, and nerves—allowing us to maneuver instruments with more accuracy than ever before.
Robotic-assisted hip replacement using the innovative MAKOplasty® or ROSA® systems require smaller incisions than traditional arthroplasty. Using 3D bone modeling and virtual implant templates based on your own imaging, we can size, align, and position your new hip joint to seamlessly match your anatomy.
With precise, personalized planning, our expert surgeons can avoid disturbing healthy tissues around the joint as we correct the cause of your symptoms. The results?
- Shorter hospital stay—or no stay required
- Faster recovery
- Lower risk of complications
MedStar Orthopaedic Institute is one of the largest musculoskeletal robotic surgical programs on the east coast, with 10 robots for hip, knee, and spine surgery. Our experienced surgeons have performed more than 1,500 robotic-assisted joint replacements to date.
