Orthopedic Specialists Offering Hip Surgery for Torn Labrums in Reno, NV

Torn Labrum Hip Reno NVYou may have heard of labral tears in the shoulder, but did you know that you can also experience a torn labrum in your hip? It’s true — a labrum is a cup-shaped piece of cartilage that lines the socket portion of a ball-and-socket joint, helping the joint to move smoothly, and you have labrums in your shoulders and hips. People may sustain a torn hip labrum in sports requiring repetitive, high-impact movements. Labral tears can also result from conditions causing abnormal hip movements — such as femoroacetabular impingement — as well as from osteoarthritis and other degenerative conditions. A torn labrum can cause pain in your hips, groin, and buttocks, as well as stiffness, an unsteady feeling, and a clicking sound. Fortunately, if you have a hip labral tear and you’re in the Reno, Nevada, area, you can turn to the experts at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic for treatment.

Treatment for a Torn Hip Labrum

In many cases, patients are able to relieve the symptoms of a torn hip labrum using conservative, nonsurgical treatments. These might include pain relievers, anti-inflammatory medications, corticosteroid injections, and physical therapy. In more severe cases, however, surgery may be required to repair or reconstruct a torn hip labrum. If you do require labrum surgery, you can rest easy knowing that Dr. Rueben Nair — one of our experienced sports medicine physicians — has extensive experience performing arthroscopy of the hip with labral repair and reconstruction.
