Hip & Knee
Your hips and knees bear all of the weight of your body and grant you a wide range of motion. Unfortunately, they are prone to many orthopedic conditions and injuries, which can lead painful symptoms and roadblocks in mobility and function. As people age, the hip and knee joints often exhibit issues such as osteoarthritis and joint degeneration. Your hips and knees play an important role in your daily mobility, which is why our expert orthopedic doctors are proud to offer a variety of hip and knee treatments.
The orthopedic surgeons at Springfield Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Institute offer state-of-the-art treatments for conditions and injuries involving the hip and knee, including advanced diagnostics, and early intervention and preventive measures, so you can walk, run, bend, and get around easily without discomfort.
When possible, our providers perform minimally invasive surgical procedures to ensure a speedy and smooth recovery. These minimally invasive procedures involve less invasive techniques than traditional surgical procedures, allowing patients to heal more quickly and get back to the activities that make them happy.
Arthritis, inflammation, sports injuries, work injuries, and aging are the most common causes of hip and knee pain. This pain often hinders patients from enjoying the activities they love, whether that be playing basketball with their friends or keeping up with their children.

Osteoarthritis Treatments and Joint Replacement
Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, often affects aging adults but can affect people at an earlier age as a result of overuse. Our orthopedic doctors prefer to treat arthritis without surgery for as long as possible. For osteoarthritis of the knee, viscosupplementation injections lubricate the joint, helping to minimize pain, stiffness, and swelling.
When arthritis progresses to the stage at which surgery becomes necessary, our board-certified orthopedists can perform Birmingham hip resurfacing, hip replacement, total knee replacement, or partial knee replacement, often using a minimally invasive approach to improve joint function and eliminate pain. We prescribe a comprehensive post-operative rehabilitation program and work closely with your physical therapist to optimize results and help you return to normal activity as quickly as possible.
Our Springfield orthopedic surgeons perform over 500 arthroscopic procedures annually to diagnose and treat osteoarthritis and many other orthopedic injuries and conditions of the hip and knee. Our orthopedic doctors are experts in osteoarthritis treatment and joint replacement surgery, giving patients peace of mind that they are in good hands.
