Although hip injuries are highly common in people of all ages, they are more likely to occur in those who participate in sports, as well as the elderly. At Southland Orthopaedics, we have years of clinical experience diagnosing and treating hip injuries, as well as performing cutting-edge hip surgery.
Our team of board-certified orthopaedic surgeons and physical therapists develop individualized treatment plans for each and every patient. We start by giving you a full medical/physical examination to understand the root cause of your hip pain. From there, we will order diagnostic testing, and go over all of your surgical and non-surgical treatment options. Although we do provide orthopaedic surgery, we also offer physical therapy and non-surgical therapies.
