Osteoarthritis most commonly presents with morning stiffness and pain related to use, and is very common in patients older than 65 years of age. It is classified as either primary or secondary. Secondary causes should be entertained in younger patients, and these include femoracetabular impingement syndrome, developmental dysplasia of the hip, and ankylosing spondylitis (see image below).

One thought on “Hip Osteoarthritis

  1. I also had different lab and xray procedures because I OA when I was a teenager. My parents had me go through physical therapy but since there were no signs of improvement, they have decided to give stem cell treatment a go. My stem cell therapy went really fine, as I expected. I could tell that my orthopedic surgeon (he’s name is Joseph Purita) is a well experienced doctor.
