HIP PAIN EXPERT

There are many causes of hip pain. The hip joint along with the knee joint bears the most weight in the body and is therefore critical to a person's mobility. Some of the most common reasons people have hip pain are listed below.

Hip Arthritis: Hip arthritis is a chronic problem that commonly occurs as people age.  Arthritis is essentially the wearing out of the joint over time, and when it is severe it can become "bone-on-bone" (see xray below, no space between the ball and socket remaining). It can be treated with anti-inflammatory medicines, cortisone injections, exercises, weight loss, use of a cane, and total hip replacement surgery as the last option when conservative measures have failed. Although nobody wants to have surgery, fortunately anterior total hip replacement surgery is one of the most successful procedures in all of medicine.

Labrum Tears & Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI): The labrum is a cushion structure inside the socket of the hip joint (similar to the meniscus of the knee joint). Patients can get a labral tear after an injury, or sometimes because of abnormal hip alignment. Labral tears and femoracetabular impingement often go together and can lead to hip arthritis later in life. Depending on the patient these problems can be treated with hip arthroscopy surgery when nonoperative treatments fail to resolve the problem.

Hip Bursitis: Hip bursitis is a common cause of hip pain and is usually located on the side of the hip. It often hurts if the patient tries to sleep on the affected hip at night. Hip bursitis rarely requires surgery and should be treated with anti-inflammatory medicines, injections, exercises, and rest.

Patient Testimonials

"I talked with over four orthopedic surgeons and their staff before selecting the surgeon for my knee replacement. I am pleased I chose Dr. Weidner. He is an excellent Surgeon. His PA, Ms. Richardson, spent over 30 minutes on the phone talking to me about things as the best use of pain medicine, excellent staff. Dr. Weidner uses the latest technology as robotics wisely. He is very willing to talk and work with me as the patient. I highly recommend Dr. Weidner."

"Dr. Weidner replaced my right hip and after one year replaced the left hip. I send my heartfelt gratitude, thank you for everything you have done for me. It is wonderful not to walk around in pain anymore. Not many people have a chance to say they have as great of doctor as I do."

"Dr. Weidner was referred to me by another doctor who was unable to address the issue with my knee after it became infected from an initial surgery (not done by Dr. Weidner). At the very first visit, Dr. Weidner was personable & took the time to answer my questions unlike most docs who rush you in/out. Every visit thereafter, Dr. Weidner's calm & positive approach left me feeling confident that I would finally have use of my knee. To date, I am farther along than I have ever been. Awesome doc"

"Dr. Weidner is great he has done 3 knee surgeries on me and I wouldn’t want any other doctor. He listen to what you have to say and works with you until he finds a solution."

"I highly recommend Dr. Weidner. Fell on the ice and required knee surgery. Excellent results and speedy recovery. He explained all aspects of surgery and how to best care for the knee. He is an excellent surgeon with a very caring attitude. Follows up to ensure everything is progressing as expected. Recently had an issue with rotor cuff and he once again demonstrated his professional competence through alternative options to prevent a worsening condition. Outstanding professional."

"Dr. Weidner is a great doctor. Takes the time to talk to you and really does care. Had a left hip replacement earlier this year and in spite of my age and physical condition, it was relatively pain free shortly thereafter. Hip works great. He's going to do my other hip in a couple of months. No worries here. I should add that the office is very nice and all of the assistants are very courteous and responsive."

"The best ever... the man is an artist!!! I've had 2 surgery procedures done, and both effective!!"
