The hip joint allows for the front-to-back and side-to-side motion that allows you to run, walk, and more. This movement is possible because of bones, ligaments, muscles, and tendons working together in the hip. Without the hip, many of the movements we take for granted each day would not be possible. Hip conditions can have a profound impact on quality of life, your family, and friends.
There are a wide range of hip conditions, and every person is different, so symptoms of conditions may present differently for different people. Symptoms also vary depending on the condition, its severity, location, and other factors.
Diseases and disorders in the hip can have a profound impact on quality of life, your family, and friends. There are a wide range of treatment options that may greatly improve your condition.
Treatment options will vary depending on the condition and the condition’s location, severity, and other characteristics. Other factors, like your general health and other conditions you may have, may also affect your treatment options. Your doctor will work with you to determine your condition and best treatment plan to help you get back to a better way of life.
"5 months out from right hip scope with labral reconstruction, it has been a little ruff but it now has been so worth it. The pain that I had is now pretty much gone. The little bit I have now will continue to heal and will be gone in time. I am so glad I had the surgery."
"7 weeks from left hip surgery labral repair and all is well. It was much better than I expected it to be. dr. Baxter and his staff were great as we're the staff at the surgery center. Hope to not need them again, but will definitely come back here if I have other issues in the future."
"5 months out from my right hip scope with labral repair, my daily pain is gone. I no longer have issues sitting for long periods. I was able to hike 3-6 miles a day in the mountains with virtually no pain."
"Left hip arthroscopy 7 weeks ago with labral repair, best thing I've ever done for myself. The initial pain after surgery was mild at best and easily managed with ,education. That period lasted only 2-3 days. Afterward. I had range of motion in and around the hip that I had felt in years. Muscle and connective tissue stiffness that coincided with this problem, began to subside. Seven weeks in, I'm continuing therapy and making great progress. Surgery told a little over an hour. Really could not believe how relatively easy of a recovery this has been for such a large and important joint. I would definitely recommend this procedure to those who are experiencing symptoms from this diagnosis."

His team both atvtheboffice and the surgical center are first class. No need to look further for the best choice. Dr Baxter is it!"
"Almost 6 years out from right total hip replacement , I would do it all over again. I am a long haul truck driver and while I do experience some occasional discomfort, I know I'm much better off as a result of the surgery. One word of advice: the key to your recovery and long term benefit is the physical therapy. Consider that your "job" while you recover. I strongly recommend Dr. Baxter and his team!"
"4 months from left hip scope with labral repair. So happy I had it repaired! It's been a very long recovery process, still improving. I am way better than before the surgery. I would strongly advise taking physical therapy seriously if you're trying to return to your before-injury activities."
"Left hip scope 2years ago and had labral repair, incredibly active and having no issues. I injured my hip in college sports and wish I had this strength in my hip during those years. Dr. Baxter has performed many surgeries for me and my family and he is always a pleasure and does a phenomenal job."

"11years ago I had my right hip replaced. I had been putting off surgery as long as I could but the pain finally would not let me sleep more than 2-3 hours at a time. Dr. Baxter did a press fit, which required no weight bearing for 30 days. When the month was over, I resumed a normal lifestyle minus running & jumping. I felt ten years younger & have been active outdoors ever since, fishing, hunting, & walking 10-12 miles a week. I have been pain free since January of 2006 & am so thankful for the new lease on life!"
