Recognized by U.S. News & World Report

UT Southwestern Medical Center has earned High Performing recognition for treatment of hip fractures from U.S. News & World Report, placing us among the country's leading hospitals for this area of care.

UT Southwestern Medical Center’s orthopaedic specialists deliver comprehensive diagnostics, treatment, and rehabilitation services to patients with hip conditions – from fractures and sports injuries to hip dysplasia and femoroacetabular impingement.

Comprehensive Hip Services

The hip is the body’s largest ball-and- socket joint. While the hips are normally very stable, factors such as overuse, falls, inflammatory diseases, and congenital conditions can cause painful and debilitating problems.

The orthopaedic specialists at UT Southwestern offer expert surgical and nonsurgical treatments for a wide range of hip injuries and disorders. When surgery is needed, we first seek hip preservation. If that’s not possible, we are also experts at hip reconstruction surgery.

Hip conditions we treat include:

  • Abductor muscle tear
  • Acetabular dysplasia
  • Arthritis
  • Avascular necrosis (AVN)
  • Bursitis
  • Cartilage injury
  • Congenital hip conditions
  • Dislocations
  • Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)
  • Fractures
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Hip impingement
  • Labral tears
  • Legg-Calve-Perthes disease
  • Osteonecrosis
  • Sports injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE)
  • Snapping hip syndrome
  • Tendinitis

Specialized Hip Treatments

We offer physical medicine and rehabilitation and focused conservative therapies aimed at treating hip injuries and disorders without surgery.

For patients who do require surgery, our team also specializes in state-of- the art surgical interventions – some of which now can be performed using minimally invasive techniques, such as:
