Identify and treat the most common causes of hip pain in the outpatient setting with returning guest, Dr Ted Parks. A large majority of hip pain in the office setting will be due to one of three conditions (hip osteoarthritis, greater trochanteric pain syndrome, and lumbo-sacral back pain). Learn to easily identify these conditions, how to initiate conservative treatment, and more about hip replacements.
