The human body is remarkably complicated – to the point it would be virtually impossible for any doctor to have advanced knowledge of all areas. As such, we specialize. Podiatrists, for example, specialize in diagnosing and treating medical conditions related to feet and ankles.
Orthopedists are doctors who are trained and experienced in providing diagnoses and care for conditions that related to the musculoskeletal system throughout the body.
Joints, in particular, are features of this body system often impacted by injury and other conditions.
Further, the hip joints can be especially prone to an array of medical issues. When these kinds of problems develop, you may need to seek orthopedic care from Dr. Fujii and other team members here at McDowell Orthopedics & Podiatry Group.
The Highest Quality Podiatric and Orthopedic Care in Sacramento
We are dedicated to providing the most advanced equipment and techniques to address a wide range of medical conditions for all of our patients – including those who suffer from various hip conditions.
In many cases, patients come to us become hip problems are debilitating. They cause discomfort, pain, and take away the ability to perform even daily activities (to say nothing of the activities you actually want to do). Just walking around can be difficult.
More than pain during activity, certain hip issues are painful even in periods of rest – like when you are trying to sleep at night.
At this point, you might not be sure as to whether or not you need surgery to resolve the problem. To that end, we want you to know it’s certainly a possibility, but we may be able to explore nonsurgical options and potentially help you find relief that way.
In the event surgery is the best course of action, you will be treated by an experienced, skilled surgeon who has been able to treat many other patients suffering from similar symptoms.
Either way—conservative or surgical—you are guaranteed to receive first-class hip orthopedic services from McDowell Orthopedics & Podiatry Group.
