Osteoarthritis of The Hips - Symptoms, Causes w/ Surgical Replacement Techniques and Non-Surgical Cell Based Alternatives for Hip Pain
Manage episode 319871116 series 3285386
Arthroscopic joint replacement involves the doctor inserting a microdiscectomy through the hip joint and into the surrounding muscles and tissues. This helps to rebuild your cartilage and decrease pain but you may need to have more than one treatment.
Medications that are used to treat hip osteoarthritis include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, analgesics, and steroidal solutions. . These medications can also be used to treat other conditions besides osteoarthritis to reduce the stiffness and pain caused by arthritis in the knees, hips, and ankles.
In some cases, your doctor may recommend surgery to replace the damaged cartilage in your hip osteoarthritis or non-surgical stem cell treatment for hip. The femoral head is then replaced on the opposite side of the hip joint so that the femoral head is placed on the underside of the tibial surface. This allows the femoral head to better absorb shock and reduce friction that can cause bone spurs in your hip joint.
