Located where the thighbone meets the pelvis, your hip is a “ball and socket” joint that is very stable. While healthy hips require great force to cause injury, overuse and degeneration can also lead to hip problems. Depending upon your symptoms, Dr. Robert A. Kayal, MD and his team may recommend rest, ice, anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy or surgery for your hip condition. When possible, the Kayal Orthopaedic Center team uses a minimally invasive surgical approach to address your hip pain. Minimally invasive procedures are performed using tiny incisions to expedite healing time and reduce scar tissue buildup.
Common symptoms of hip injury or disease include:
- Pain in the hip joint or down the leg
- Instability or limp
- Reduced range of motion
- Impingement or “catching”
- Popping, clicking or grinding
As hip specialists, Dr. Kayal and his staff of NJ hip specialists perform hundreds of minimally invasive procedures and traditional hip surgeries each year. Committed to expediting your return to work and activity, Kayal Orthopaedic Center is your partner in all types of hip and lower extremity care. As regional orthopedic leaders, Dr. Robert A. Kayal and Dr. E. Jeffrey Pope are two of only a small number of surgeons who regularly perform hip arthroscopy for loose bodies, osteoarthritis of the hip, labral tears of the hip and femoracetabular impingement (FAI).
