Hip Doctor

As the premier orthopedic and neurosurgical providers for Vancouver, Portland, Lake Oswego, and the surrounding areas for over 50 years, Rebound Orthopedics & Neurosurgery offers exceptional hip care from our fellowship-trained and board-certified hip doctors so you can rebound. 

Hip pain is common among patients of all ages and lifestyles, from an elite athlete who suffers a labral tear to an older adult who sustains a fracture from falling. All severe hip conditions and injuries should be evaluated by an orthopedic hip doctor, as they have the education, experience, and training to diagnose a variety of hip problems. Hip doctors typically have additional specialized training in either joint replacement or sports medicine, giving them advanced knowledge of the anatomy of the hip joint. After the evaluation of a patient's hip injury or condition, a hip doctor will discuss all available treatment options, which include both nonsurgical and surgical methods. The ultimate decision regarding the best treatment plan will be dependent on the individual's unique needs and lifestyle, as the overall goal is to help each patient restore their health. 

When Is It Time to Consult a Hip Doctor?

Being able to communicate any of the symptoms you are experiencing will allow you to provide helpful information to your hip doctor. It can reveal to your doctor how severe your hip injury is or the type of hip condition you may have. It is important to schedule an appointment with a hip doctor near you if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Cannot put weight on the affected hip and leg
  • Hip looks deformed
  • Leg turns outward when walking
  • Limping to help ease the pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • One leg appears shorter than the other
  • Pain in the buttocks
  • Pain in the groin area
  • Pain that travels from the hip joint down to the knee
  • Searing joint pain that keeps you up at night
  • Tenderness around the hip joint

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it could mean that you have one of the following injuries or conditions, which can be treated by our hip specialists: 

  • Arthritis

Our fellowship-trained and board-certified hip surgeons, Todd A. Borus, M.D.James (Jim) Chesnutt, M.D.Dhanur Damodar, M.D.M. Robson Fraser, M.D.Heather J. Roberts, M.D., and Stephen R. Southerland, M.D., F.R.C.S.C., have the skill and expertise to treat a wide variety of hip injuries and conditions. Our hip doctors will always exhaust all conservative treatment options before suggesting surgery; however, there are some situations in which hip surgery is the best option to help eliminate pain and restore function. If hip surgery is recommended, our surgeons have vast experience in performing many surgical procedures, including hip replacement, treatment of hip fractures, direct anterior approach for total hip replacement, hip resurfacing, and hip arthroscopy.

To help facilitate a full and rapid recovery, our hip surgeons take a team approach when it comes to patient-centered care, and they work in conjunction with our physical therapists and athletic trainers, who offer comprehensive physical therapy services. Our ultimate goal is to provide an effective rehabilitation plan that is focused on your individual needs to help you resume a pain-free lifestyle.
