Our specialty-trained hip doctors at Carolina Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center are recognized experts in the diagnosis and treatment of hip injuries and conditions.
Hip pain can be the result of a condition that has developed over time, such as bursitis and arthritis, or of a recent hip injury, such as a hip fracture or hip dislocation. In some cases, and if not detected early, conditions like hip bursitis and hip arthritis may create extreme bone and joint discomfort, making surgery a viable option for relieving your hip pain.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, you may have a hip condition, such as hip osteoarthritis, hip bursitis, hip arthritis, or an injury like a fractured hip, dislocated hip, hip flexor injury, or labral tear.
