Hip Pain Care

Surgical and Non-Surgical Treatments

Has your life been negatively impacted by joint pain? Are you missing out of your favorite activities? Have trouble getting in or out of the car – or putting on shoes or socks?

If you’re not feeling your best, it’s important to schedule an appointment with one of our orthopedic experts – so you can start getting relief and prevent more serious problems.

At Avera Orthopedics, you’ll benefit from a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to your unique circumstances and goals.

Non-Surgical Options

There are alternatives to surgery. Whenever possible, your treatment will begin with conservative, nonsurgical options such as bracing, injections, medications (including over-the-counter and prescriptions), occupational therapy and physical therapy.

Outpatient Joint Replacement

Wondering if you need hip replacement? If non-surgical treatments haven’t relieved ongoing pain or stiffness, you may benefit from joint replacement, minimally invasive or robotic surgical procedures. We also offer same-day outpatient orthopedic surgery options.

Minimally Invasive Hip Surgical Options

When possible, an Avera orthopedic surgeon will perform your procedure using minimally-invasive techniques that require only small incisions that reduce pain and speed recovery.

  • Anterior approach hip replacement
  • Mini posterior approach hip replacement
  • Total and partial joint replacements for hip
  • Revisions of total hip replacements

How this helps you: These procedures leave the larger hip muscles intact, so you experience less pain and recovery time, and ultimately get a better outcome. As a result, you can recover more quickly.

Hip Total Joint Replacement

You may benefit from a hip replacement if nonsurgical treatments haven’t relieved ongoing pain or stiffness.

Our orthopedic surgeons and staff use advanced surgical techniques and technology, pain management programs and a guided total joint recovery program. It may be hard to believe, but in most cases, nurses will have you out of bed and walking within a few hours of surgery.

  • Outpatient Joint Replacement: Recover at Home: Outpatient total hip replacement surgery is safe and effective – and you can return home the day of surgery or the next morning.
  • Inpatient Recovery: If you need more extensive care or rehabilitation due to other health conditions or factors, you can also rest easy in the care of an Avera hospital.

How this helps you: A successful joint replacement can last 20 years, making it the number one value in medicine today.
