Avascular Necrosis (Osteonecrosis) of the Hip - This is a weakening and collapse of the bone in the head of your femur. That's the ball that fits in the socket of your hip. As this bone gradually dies and breaks apart, you can develop painful arthritis in your hip. Early diagnosis of the problem is made by MRI.

Bursitis of the Hip (Trochanteric Bursitis) - This is an irritation or swelling of the trochanteric bursa. This small, fluid-filled sac is found on the outer side of the femur. It acts as a cushion for the iliotibial band, a thick tendon in your leg. It is a common cause of hip pain on the side of the hip joint.

Core Decompression for Avascular Necrosis of the Hip - This procedure treats avascular necrosis by removing degenerated and dead bone tissue and creating room for new, healthy tissue to grow. It typically works best for people who are in the earliest stages of the disease. The surgery can be done outpatient in our Citrus Park Surgery Center.

Hip Arthroscopy - This outpatient procedure, performed in our Citrus Park Surgery Center, is an examination of the inside of the hip joint. The surgeon uses miniature instruments and a small camera (called an arthroscope) to see inside the joint. Arthroscopy can be used to diagnose and treat problems of the joint.

Hip Hemiarthroplasty (Bipolar) - This surgical procedure replaces the head of a damaged femur with an implant designed to stabilize the femur and restore hip function. Unlike total hip replacement, in which both the ball of the femur and the hip socket are replaced, in this procedure, only the ball is replaced. Patients can usually begin weight bearing with physical therapy shortly after the procedure is done.

Labral Tear of the Hip (Acetabular Labrum Tear) - If your hip joint hurts, or if it catches or clicks when you move your leg, you may have a torn labrum. That's a rim of tissue that surrounds the hip's socket. It helps to deepen the socket and cushion the joint. A torn labrum can keep the hip joint from working smoothly. An MRI is usually necessary to make the proper diagnosis.

Loose Bodies in the Hip - Loose bodies are pieces of cartilage or bone of various sizes that have broken away and become trapped in a joint. Loose bodies usually have an irregular shape, but over time they may be worn down into a smooth, spherical or disc-shaped mass. It is a common cause of hip pain and can be diagnosed on MRI.

Muscle Strain Injuries of the Hip - The hip is where the femur meets the pelvis. Several strong muscles are found here. They handle high loads of stress. They may suffer from overstretching and tearing. This is called a muscle "strain." It's a common injury among athletes who play sports that require sudden starts and stops. Treatment is non-surgical but will require activity modification and physical therapy.

Osteoarthritis of the Hip - This type of arthritis, also called "degenerative joint disease," is a breakdown of the cartilage in your hip joint. As this protective cartilage wears away, bone rubs against bone. Bony growths called "bone spurs" may form in the joint. Pain from osteoarthritis can keep you from being as active as you like. Diagnosis is made by x-ray and physical examination. X-rays can be done in our clinic.

PRP Therapy (Overview) - Platelet rich plasma therapy can help injured joints and other problems. It uses platelets and platelet factors in your own blood to reduce pain and speed up healing. Platelets are "first responsive" to an area of injury. They release platelet factors which signal the body about the injury and attract other cells to the area to help heal the injury, including stem cells. PRP is the own body's healing ability concentrated down. It can be injected into injured area of muscles or joints, like the knee, shoulder, hip, to decrease inflammation and pain to promote healing.

Sacroiliac Joint Pain - Your sacroiliac joints (we call them the "SI" joints) are the places where your hips meet your spine. These joints don't have a lot of flexibility, but they do move slightly as you move your body. And if SI joints become damaged or diseased, it can be painful. SI joint pain is a common cause of back pain and is often overlooked. The doctors at Nucci Medical are experts in diagnosing and treating SI joint pain.
