Arthroscopic hip surgery produces results no better than doing nothing
Arthroscopic surgeries for hip impingement aimed at preventing arthritis by eliminating bone spurs and reshaping the hip perform no better than no surgery. Moreover, hip surgery in general typically won’t increase your activity level. Regenexx can regenerate damaged hips without the need for surgery.Are You a Regenexx Candidate?
Avoid Hip Surgery with Regenexx
Osteoarthritis of the hip is characterized by fast-progressing degeneration of hip tissue that causes impairment of function. Pain management strategies involving non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) raise the risk of stroke and heart attack while opioid pain medications have high risk for abuse. Steroid injectionsalso have significant downsides.
Hip surgeries are especially traumatic and require months of painful recovery while patients redevelop strength and mobility and won’t increase your activity level. Common arthroscopic hip surgeries produce results no better than taking no action, and hip replacements wear out over time and require revision, especially for younger patients. During this outpatient procedure, our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body’s natural healing mechanisms into the exact areas of damage to tighten and stabilize your hip for better function and mobility. Call our patient care coordinators today to get started on your path to recovery.
