Hip Orthopedic Care
The hip joints are crucial for mobility, playing a vital role in walking, running, bending, sitting and jumping. These joints also carry a heavy load and interact with some of the largest and strongest muscles in the body. Wear, tear, injuries and disease can all take a toll on the hip joints, resulting in pain and loss of function. Our experienced orthopedic team at DOCS Health offers advanced options in hip orthopedic care at our medical center in Los Angeles.
The pelvic bone and femurs create the two ball and socket hip joints, connected with various ligaments and tendons. In addition, the hip connects to the lower back and buttocks in a complex configuration of musculoskeletal tissues and bone.
