OVERVIEW

Dr. Marvin Lo specializes in providing comprehensive services to all members of the family experiencing hip related injuries.  Hip conditions normally involve disease or injury that can disturb the normal functioning of the joint.  This can result in hip pain, weakness, instability and limited movement.  With longer life expectancy and greater activity levels, joint replacement is being performed in greater numbers on patients thanks to new advances in artificial joint technology provided by innovative orthopedic surgeons such as Dr. Marvin Lo.

CONDITIONS & TREATMENT OPTIONS

Normally, all of the parts of the hip joint work together and the joint moves easily and without pain. However, disease or injury can disturb the normal functioning of a joint, which can result in hip pain, muscle weakness, and limited movement. And with longer life expectancies and greater activity levels, joint replacement is being performed in greater numbers on younger patients thanks to new advances in artificial joint technology.

Joint degeneration can eventually make it extremely difficult for individuals to work and enjoy themselves. It also can make it difficult for individuals to care for themselves.
