Your hip is a versatile ball-and-socket joint. The ball is formed by the upper end of your femur (thigh bone) and fits into the socket, which is formed by the acetabulum (concave surface of your pelvis). The cartilage that coats the ball and lines the socket provides a smooth gliding surface so that your hip joint can move fluidly. Injury can damage or wear down this cartilage, and it isn’t able to repair itself. The results are often stiffness, hip and groin pain, and/or weakness. We can help.
The specialists at the Orthopaedic Hospital of Wisconsin provide the latest in surgical and rehabilitation interventions to help eliminate your hip pain and get you moving again.
