Expert Care for Your Hip Pain
Hip pain is one of the most debilitating orthopedic ailments, often limiting one’s ability to perform simple tasks, such as climbing stairs or walking. At Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth, our physician specialists have the expertise to handle any kind of hip pain. Our goal is to return patients to the quality of life they are expecting—playing golf, dancing at their daughter’s wedding, biking, swimming—whatever patients perceive as their goal becomes our goal.
Our physician specialists have extensive experience treating osteoarthritis or the wear and tear of the hip joints.
We are also particularly proud that BID-Plymouth is among the top hospitals in Massachusetts with the lowest complication rate for hip replacement surgery. **
