Hip Pain

Avoid Hip Surgery: Consider the Regenerative Alternative

Why Surgery Should Always Be Your Last Treatment Option

Hip pain is a frequent problem that develops as we age, or if we suffer an acute injury due to a fall or a sports-related injury.

Unfortunately, surgery is commonly presented as the only option to patients by their doctors, even when studies have shown that many of these surgeries produce no benefit or are minimally effective for treating the condition. Often, physical therapy alone produces equal outcomes when compared with common surgeries.

While there certainly are times when surgery is required, regenerative treatments are quickly becoming the preferred surgical alternative for conditions ranging from tendon and ligament tears, arthritis, damaged cartilage, instability, overuse injuries, and many other conditions that cause hip pain.

Regenerative treatment patients avoid the long list of surgical risks, which are often not experienced until well after the surgery. Besides the risks associated with surgery, patients deal with painful and lengthy recovery periods to regain strength and range of motion. And depending on the type of surgery, patients are likely to experience an earlier onset of arthritis, due to the surgical removal of tissue that typically stabilizes or cushions the joint (such as hip labrum surgery).

With regenerative treatments, patients benefit from minimal downtime and are encouraged to return to activity. We have seen plenty of regenerative patients experience a full recovery and become pain-free, even when surgery or joint replacement was originally recommended for their condition.
