At The Hip Center at Andrews Sports Medicine, our team is a strong advocate for the “comprehensive hip care” concept, treating men and women of all ages, suffering with a broad range of hip conditions that can occur at any stage of life.
Our approach to treating hip disease recognizes the wide variety of disorders, the diverse patient population afflicted with these disorders and the full spectrum of contemporary treatment options.
Our #1 priority is to establish an accurate diagnosis and to develop an individualized treatment plan, in which the recommendations are customized to the diagnosis and specific needs of each patient.
Our extremely experienced team has the expertise to accurately diagnose and deliver the full spectrum of both non-surgical and surgical solutions for hip injuries, disorders, and chronic/advanced disease.
Our center classifies hip disorders into two categories:
1. Non-Arthritic Hip Disorders/Hip Preservation - Generally soft tissue injuries or conditions that can be caused by acute events or chronic/repetitive injuries.
