Osteoarthritis of the Hip
Doctors at NYU Langone’s Joint Preservation and Arthritis Center at NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital and NYU Langone Orthopedic Center collaborate under one roof to provide comprehensive care to people with osteoarthritis of the hip. Our team of arthritis experts includes rheumatologists, orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, and physiatrists, who specialize in rehabilitation.
Osteoarthritis is progressive joint damage that can cause pain and stiffness in the hip. If the disease progresses, symptoms can make walking and other activities difficult. Our physicians approach diagnosis and treatment using tools and techniques based on the latest clinical research.
The cause of pain and other osteoarthritis symptoms may vary from person to person, and our specialists use advanced imaging tests to identify the source of hip pain and determine the most appropriate treatment, including procedures to preserve the hip joint and slow the progression of joint damage.
