Michael J. Sileo, M.D., FAAOS, is an experienced orthopedic surgeon dedicated to providing comprehensive care for various hip conditions and injuries. At our office, we combine our expertise in hip anatomy, knowledge of various conditions, and proficiency in advanced procedures, including arthroscopy and arthroscopic hip labral repair, to deliver exceptional treatment outcomes.
Understanding the complex structure and function of the hip is crucial for effective diagnosis and treatment. The hip joint consists of the femur and the acetabulum . It is a complex ball-and-socket joint that allows for a wide range of motion. The surrounding muscles, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage work together to provide stability and facilitate smooth movement.
Dr. Michael J. Sileo specializes in diagnosing and treating various hip conditions. These may include:
- Osteoarthritis: Degenerative joint disease that leads to the breakdown of cartilage and results in pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility.
- Hip fractures: Commonly occurring in older individuals due to falls or traumatic injuries, resulting in a broken hip bone.
- Hip bursitis: Inflammation of the bursae (fluid-filled sacs) located near the hip joint, causing pain and discomfort.
- Labral tears: Tears or damage to the labrum (a ring of cartilage) in the intricate hip joint, often caused by trauma or repetitive motion, resulting in pain, clicking, or locking sensations.
- Hip impingement: Abnormal contact between the hip socket and femur, causing pain, limited range of motion, and cartilage damage.
Dr. Sileo is experienced in diagnosing and treating these and many other hip conditions. We utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic techniques and work closely with each patient to develop comprehensive treatment plans.
As part of our comprehensive hip treatments, we offer advanced procedures, including arthroscopy and arthroscopic hip labral repair. These minimally invasive techniques provide numerous benefits, including reduced post-operative pain, smaller incisions, quicker recovery times, and improved outcomes.
- Arthroscopy: This procedure involves inserting a small, flexible camera (arthroscope) into the hip joint through a small incision. The arthroscope transmits images to a monitor, allowing our surgeon to visualize the internal structures of the hip and identify any abnormalities or damage.
- Arthroscopic Hip Labral Repair: Our orthopedic surgeon may recommend arthroscopic hip labral repair in cases where a labral tear is detected. This procedure involves using specialized instruments to repair or remove the damaged labrum. It aims to restore stability and alleviate pain, enabling patients to regain hip function.
Our dedicated medical team ensures clear communication, compassionate care, and thorough follow-up throughout the treatment process to optimize your recovery and long-term hip health.
