What you can do today to preserve your hips for tomorrow.
Total joint replacement surgery is a modern medical miracle, offering relief to people whose hips have deteriorated to the point to no return. However, as helpful as the surgery is, it is a major undertaking and should only be considered as a last resort for pain and progressive degenerative diseases. That’s why Ortho NorthEast has developed an innovative hip preservation program designed to delay or avoid total hip replacement surgery, while effectively treating pain.
ONE takes a team approach to hip preservation, with doctors from different specialties working together to create individualized treatment plans for each patient. The final goal is always the same, preserving the natural joint by delaying the need for total joint replacement surgery. Each plan begins with an initial assessment and diagnosis, which rules out other causes of the pain, such as underlying vascular or spinal issues. A unique treatment strategy specific to your needs is then developed that may include medications, physical therapy, injections or a combination of these. ONE’s individualized hip preservation plans often provide effective pain relief while also helping to preserve the natural joint.
