Hip Surgeon in Austin, TX
The main symptom of a hip condition or injury is pain or stiffness in your hip, groin, thigh, buttock, and sometimes in the knee. The pain may occur with activity or at rest. It may even keep you awake at night. You may have difficulty moving or lifting your leg at times.
When hip pain limits your everyday activities, such as walking, bending over, and climbing stairs, then it’s time to see an orthopedic physician who specializes in hip problems to find a solution.
