Hip Injuries And Conditions

Dr. Catherine Robertson, sports medicine orthopedic surgeon at UC San Diego Health, discusses common hip problems and some treatment options.

The hip is a common site of pain and dysfunction in active individuals. Our understanding of hip mechanics and musculature has evolved rapidly over the past decade, resulting in significant advances in the diagnosis and treatment of hip pain. UC San Diego Health offers the most comprehensive treatment for hip pain in San Diego, with specialists trained in nonsurgical care, hip arthroscopy, hip resurfacing and total hip replacement.

If you think you may have one of these diagnoses and require further evaluation or treatment, call to schedule an appointment with one of our sports medicine physicians.

See Center for Joint Care for information on treatment of arthritis and degenerative hip conditions.
