Orthopedics is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system, which includes the hip joints. Orthopedic surgeons treat injuries and illnesses that affect some part of the musculoskeletal system, including the hip joint. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical methods to treat degenerative diseases, sports injuries, infections, tumors and congenital disorders.
The orthopedic surgeons at the La Peer Hip Surgery Center of Excellence in Beverly Hills are leading experts in their field and formulate individualized treatment plans for patients with all different types of disabling hip joint disorders. Patients who opt to visit our world-renowned facilities receive an unparalleled quality of service and care. They also benefit from our knowledge and expertise in the very latest orthopedic hip surgery procedures.
Hip arthroscopy is a procedure in which an orthopedic surgeon makes small incisions in the patient’s hip area and inserts a camera so the interior of the joint can be transmitted to a monitor and viewed. Hip arthroscopy can be used to detect and treat many hip-related problems including: labral tears, loose bodies, cartilage damage, and arthritis.
Additionally, we offer a variety of non-surgical treatment options for hip arthritis including: physical therapy, medications and supplements, weight loss programs, activity modification programs and walking aids.
At La Peer Health Systems, our orthopedic hip surgeons perform a large number of hip surgery operations each year and our expertise is highly regarded in the medical community. Our orthopedic hip surgeons are trained in joint preservation procedures that prevent progression of arthritic and congenital disease while applying the latest technology and techniques. All of our hip surgeons actively support research and education.
