The hip is a ball-and-socket joint that allows the leg to move in all directions. Common conditions that cause hip pain and restriction of motion include hip arthritis, hip impingement and hip dysplasia, as well as injuries such as hip dislocation. Read the stories of patients who had a hip injury or condition, but received the appropriate treatment at HSS to get back in the game.

Brenna Frederick, MD

"Before surgery, I could not do any physical activity involving my hip. At the time I was a swimmer. Every day after practice, my teammates would have to help me out of the pool because of the pain. Even outside of practice, my hip would affect every aspect of my life. My experience at Hospital for Special Surgery was nothing but positive. Although recovery was difficult, the staff was very friendly and concerned about making the process as smooth and pain free as they possibly could. Since the surgery, my hip has become completely pain free and I am more active than ever!"

" I drove from Philly to NYC to see Dr Kelly in Oct. of 2008, and I knew from the minute that I met him that he was going to change my life. Dr. Kelly repaired my right hip in 2008 and my left hip in 2012. I choose not to run marathons anymore, but I mountain bike, hike, play volleyball, surf, ski and snowboard with no pain at all. I am thankful everyday that I met Dr. Kelly and his team!!!"

"When I first visited Dr. Sculco in 2004 I had very limited range of motion in my hips. I walked with a significant limp. I had bilateral hip replacement in 2005. I was back to work in 10 days and leading the NY Giants off-season program 2.5 months later."
