Conditions & Treatments
Emory's experienced, board-certified specialists use the most advanced equipment and resources available to ensure the best possible treatment for a wide range of conditions affecting the hip. As teachers at a major medical research center, they are always up to date on the latest techniques for surgical and nonsurgical treatments.
Avascular Necrosis Treatment
The primary approach in treating avascular necrosis is to try to stop the progress of the disease and preserve the femoral head.
Using specialized instruments, your orthopedic surgeon may elect to cut out and remove the torn piece of cartilage in your hip or may repair the tear with sutures. Bone also may be removed in an attempt to prevent further damage from impingement.
Hip preservation involves surgical techniques ranging from minimally invasive hip arthroscopy to more complex surgery.
Total hip resurfacing is an alternative to total hip replacement for some patients who are experiencing constant pain in the hip due to arthritis or other hip conditions.
Total Hip Replacement
Total hip replacement may be appropriate for people who have severe hip pain resulting from arthritis or other hip disorders.
Revision of Total Hip Replacement
Revision hip replacement surgery is for people who have had a total hip replacement in the past but are experiencing pain and/or instability in their artificial hip.
