Whether the cause of hip pain is arthritis, trauma, infection or overuse, the orthopedic surgeons at Johns Hopkins Howard County Medical Center can diagnose and treat your problem.
If pain medications, weight loss, physical therapy or other treatments don’t provide relief, surgery may be an option. Our surgeons perform total hip replacement surgery, which removes and replaces diseased joint surfaces with prosthetic implants. We perform minimally-invasive surgery, which may involve less pain, a shorter recovery time and smaller incisions. Our specialists can help you determine whether hip surgery is right for you.
