Fellowship Trained Hip Surgeon
- Mark D. Scholl, MD – Salt Lake City East
A number of our board-certified, orthopedic surgeons specialize in the treatment of hip problems. A number of conditions can occur with the hip, especially in connection with aging. Inflammatory arthritis, osteoarthritis and osteonecrosis are all conditions that tend to accompany advanced age. But there is a wide array of injuries and illnesses that can occur regardless of age, including hip strains, dislocation, fractures, bursitis and more. Even fairly minor problems with the hip may dramatically reduce mobility. Major hip conditions can confine an individual to a wheelchair.
Our surgeons provide a full array of hip treatment and surgery services, including arthroscopic surgery and total hip replacement. A new approach in hip replacement called the Direct Anterior Approach is now offered by several of our surgeons. This procedure uses a minimally invasive surgical technique that causes less trauma to muscle and soft tissue, less blood loss and enables the patient to have a faster recovery. LEARN MORE
Non-surgical treatments may also be an option. In some cases physical therapy can be used effectively; in other situations we’re able to perform minimally invasive hip replacement. Each treatment plan is customized to the unique situation of each patient.
