Hip and Knee

At United Regional we treat a variety of hip and knee conditions.

Hip pain is most often caused by:

  • Fracture
  • Arthritis
  • Insufficient blood flow

Arthritis and insufficient blood flow can often be treated through surgery and physical therapy. Hip fractures often lead to total hip replacement because less than 50% of those who suffer a hip fracture are able to return to their normal level of activity.

Most knee injuries can be categorized by into three types:

  • ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) injury
  • MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) injury
  • Meniscus (Cartilage) tears

These soft tissue injuries are often corrected by minimally-invasive surgical procedures and physical therapy programs. However, with a severe knee injury or chronic pain, a total knee replacement may be required.
