Hip

The hip specialists of the Carrell Clinic™ are highly-trained surgeons who provide relief to patients with hip pain. Many patients begin to experience hip pain as something that comes and goes at first. For the patient it gradually gets worse and begins to prevent them from doing normal things like walking the dog, playing with the grandchildren, while others have to give up running and sports.

The hip specialists at the Carrell Clinic™ offer a full spectrum of solutions to hip pain, beginning with conservative treatment such as physical therapy and medication. When conservative treatments are exhausted, a variety of surgical options to include total hip replacement can be discussed with our physicians to find the right treatment for you.
