Conditions & Treatments
Learn about the different types of joint conditions we treat
Many different problems affect the joints. Some of these are minor conditions that can heal with rest and time. Others are more serious and need surgery to correct.
Whatever joint condition you have, our joint specialists will treat it as quickly and safely as possible.
What joint conditions does Henry Ford treat?
We treat a number of joint conditions, including:
- Elbow conditions, such as golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, and cubital tunnel syndrome
- Hip conditions, such as hip dysplasia and hip impingement
- Shoulder conditions, such as frozen shoulder and rotator cuff injuries
For injuries like tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow that may have been sustained from playing sports, our sports medicine team may be able to help, including improvements to your technique or equipment recommendations to reduce your chance of future problems.
If your condition doesn’t respond well to these options, we may recommend surgery to address the problem. We offer both minimally invasive and traditional open surgical procedures to treat joint conditions. Joint replacement is an option for particularly serious joint problems that we can’t correct surgically.
