Hip Preservation 

Relieving Chronic and Misdiagnosed Hip Pain

Hip pain can be a big roadblock to athletic aspirations, active lifestyles and just everyday living. The orthopedics department at a number of Baylor Scott & White medical centers feature skilled, multidisciplinary physicians on the medical staff who focus on providing relief from hip pain. Specialized hip preservation centers can be found at:

  • Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas
  • Baylor Scott & White All Saints Medical Center - Fort Worth
  • Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Grapevine 

Hip preservation specialists at these facilities understand the complex nature and function of the hip. They examine the interactions of the various muscles, tendons, ligaments, vessels and bone to determine the source of the pain.

Treatment That’s Right for You

The physicians and staff  develop individualized treatment plans for each patient based not only on imaging studies, but also a detailed medical history and in-depth physical exam.

In addition to the medical diagnosis, treatment focuses on what the patient wants to accomplish–whether that’s going for a swim or playing tennis again.

The overall goal is always to relieve pain, preserve function, slow or stop the progression of degenerative hip disease, return the patient to an active lifestyle, and, whenever possible, avoid hip replacement.

Minimally Invasive Relief

Minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery techniques have led to big advances in the successful diagnosis and treatment of hip disorders. Arthroscopic procedures in the hip region offer patients many potential benefits:

  • No overnight hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Quicker recovery/return to normal activities
