Hip Pain Treated in Louisville, KY

The hip joint is designed to withstand a significant amount of wear and tear, but it is not immune to damage. Hip pain can develop gradually over time due to a progressive condition, such as osteoarthritis or bursitis, or it can strike suddenly after a traumatic injury, such as a labral tear, bone fracture, or joint dislocation. If left untreated, hip pain can worsen and interfere with your active lifestyle. And no one knows that better than the hip specialists at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic in Louisville, Kentucky. Many of us participate in sports and other active pursuits, and we understand the frustration of being sidelined with hip pain. Using the latest diagnostic and treatment techniques, we can evaluate and address your condition. We can also work with you to develop preventive strategies to reduce the likelihood of reinjury.

When to See a Hip Specialist

Even though your hip pain might seem mild and tolerable at first, it’s important to have it checked out and properly diagnosed if it lasts for more than a few days or does not improve with home remedies, such as rest, ice applications, and over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). At Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic, we recommend consulting with a hip specialist about severe or persistent pain at the front of the hip, along the outside of the hip, or in the groin or buttock area, especially if the pain is accompanied by:

  • Muscle spasms or swelling
  • An inability to walk without pain
  • An inability to bend or rotate the hip without pain
  • Throbbing sensations in the hip while at rest
  • Fever or chills
  • Warmth or redness in the hip area

After evaluating your hip pain, we can help you find the right path to relief. If hip arthroscopy is appropriate and you elect to proceed, you can feel confident entrusting your surgical care to our board-certified orthopedic hip surgeons. Our outstanding surgical team is proud to be part of a professional sports medicine community that is developing increasingly noninvasive surgical solutions to treat every type of athletic injury.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
