Biologics – Hip



Ortho RI Biologics provides an innovative approach to get you back to doing what matters most, offering biologic procedures for a wide variety of hip injuries and conditions.

Hip arthritis

The breakdown of the cartilage that coats the ends of bones and joints in the hip. Normally, damaged cartilage repairs itself as older cartilage is degraded. When this degradation outpaces repair, cartilage breakdown occurs and damage to bone results. Symptoms of shoulder arthritis include pain, tenderness, stiffness, decreased flexibility, a grating sensation during movement, the formation of bone spurs around the affected joint.

Labral tears

A tear in the labrum, a ring of cartilage around the outside rim of the socket of the hip joint. The labrum cushions the hip joint and helps secure the ball at the top of the femur in the hip socket. A hip labral tear is often caused by repetitive twisting movements in athletics. Symptoms include pain in the hip, groin, or buttocks stiffness, reduced range of motion, a clicking or locking sound or sensation when the hip is moved, and unsteadiness when standing or walking.

Labral Tears

Proximal hamstring tears

A soft tissue injury to one of three hamstring muscles that meet the bones in the pelvis. Partial tears usually result from lower level trauma or repetitive injuries and can allow some muscle function. Complete tears usually occur in people over the age of 40 due to sudden injury during activity like sprinting or from a fall. Symptoms commonly include pain, weakness, and difficulty running or jumping.

Proximal hamstring tendinopathy

Inflammation or injury to the tendons of the hamstrings where these strong, cord-like structures connect the muscle to the bones in the pelvis. This condition is commonly seen in long distance runners, sprinters, and hurdlers, as well as athletes playing sports that involve involves change of direction, like football or hockey. Symptoms commonly include pain in the front of the shoulder and weakness.

Gluteal tendinopathy

Pain emanating from the upper leg and gluteal area caused by a deterioration of the tendons, sometimes caused by either excessive activity or inactivity. The most common symptoms of gluteal tendinopathy include pain or swelling in the hip, upper leg, or gluteal area. Sometimes the pain extends downward as far as the knee., often experienced while climbing stairs or lying on one’s side in bed.

Hip bursitis

Inflammation of a fluid-filled sac between the femur and the iliotibial band, a large tendon outside the hip. Tightness of the iliotibial band, hip injury, a difference in leg lengths, and other stresses like running can cause inflammation of the bursa leading to hip bursitis. Symptoms include pain at the point of the hip and extending down the leg, stiffness, tenderness, and in severe cases redness and swelling.
