Treatments & Procedures

The physicians and specialists at West Suburban Medical Center are dedicated to providing our patients with personalized treatment plans to get them back on their feet. 

We take great pride in making sure our patients receive the best orthopedic hip treatments and procedures, including some of the most advanced, minimally invasive options for hip replacement surgery. Below are common treatments for hip conditions that we may see at West Suburban Medical Center. 

Anti-inflammatories

Physicians use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs along with strengthening programs to treat mild to moderate pain associated with inflammation in the hip. 

Hip Arthroscopy

With a small incision, a surgeon can insert a pencil-sized optical device into the hip joint to see into the joint and correct problems.

Hip Dysplasia Procedures

To change the shape of the hip joint, a surgeon will typically re-shape the shallow hip socket (acetabulum) so it is in a better position to cover the ball of the hip joint.

Impingement Procedures

A physician dislocates the hip, removes the excess bone and damaged tissues and reattaches the femur bone with 2 screws.

Injections

To help relieve a patient’s hip pain as well as to diagnose the direct cause of the pain, physicians commonly prescribe injections.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is an integral component to a physician’s approach of examining and treating hip pain. It can be used to assist in gaining an understanding of the underlying causes of hip pain.

Synovectomy

When the inflamed synovial lining of the hip joint causes disabling pain, a physician can remove the lining by inserting heat-generating radio frequency probes inside the joint capsule.

Treatment of labral tears

The location, chronicity and vascularity of the injured fibrocartilage determine the way a surgeon treats labral tears, with the goal of preserving healthy tissue.
