Hip

Your hip joint is integral in keeping your body in motion, but when your hip joint causes pain, every move you make can cause pain in other areas of the body.

The hip surgeons at the Bluegrass Orthopaedics can ease your suffering and get you back to a normal, daily routine. We offer state-of-the-art care in the most technologically advanced facilities. Our trained physicians work to ensure that you receive compassionate care in a relaxing atmosphere.

In addition to total hip replacement surgery, we provide care for labral tears and soft tissue injuries, as well as bony problems.

Our Hip Replacement Specialists

Bluegrass Orthopaedics physicians will generally try to address joint pain initially with non-surgical approaches, including rest, physical therapy, applications of heat or cold and medication. Injections of a cortisone-like drug directly into a joint can also often reduce pain and inflammation. However, sometimes these methods are not successful and surgery may be necessary.

The physicians at Bluegrass Orthopaedics can help restore the joy of movement and revitalize lives.

Very good, I was well informed about what was going to happen and what to prepare for. I have not had any issues with the surgery and feel great. Had other issues that the staff (Laura) helped me with and went out of her way to make sure I was taken care of. Would recommend Dr. Christensen to anyone having a hip replacement.

I had prior hip replacements, years ago. I needed a hip revision and couldn’t find a doctor to attempt to do surgery on me, because of the complications I previously had and some I was still having. I was referred to Dr. Christensen, he went above and beyond to help me. He has a great bedside manner and is such a wonderful, caring physician. I would refer him to anyone and I will always remember how nice he has been to me. Thank you so much Dr. Christensen, May God bless you!

Dr. Christensen did a total hip replacement on me 5 years ago. I highly recommend him! Yesterday I saw Matt, the PA for some issues with my left leg. I was very impressed with him too!

The Specialty Surgery Center was outstanding. The nurses I had were, Tracy H, Janice, Lori ( OR nurse), Lesley (OR Tech), Elizabeth ( patient care tech). Dr. C needed an Xray prior to my hip replacement. An XRay tech came in early to do it. Unfortunately, I don't know her name,however, she was awesome too. I couldn't recommend both the health care and the facility any higher. This was my second encounter with the surgery center and Dr. C., which I think speaks highly of both.

Dr. Balthrop and his staff were simply outstanding! From my first visit to the time of my OUTPATIENT hip replacement yesterday everything was as professional as a well oiled machine, but also personalized. My assigned nurse called this morning to check on me. Almost no pain at all. It has been a day and a half and my main concern is not overdoing my movement, cause I feel like I could generally do anything I wanted to do. Thanks to Dr. Balthrop and his first rate staff!

He is so knowledgeable and personable to boot! I have a history of blood clots and even though I tried to talk him into just taking aspirin after surgery, he insisted on my taking Eliquis. Good thing, because even on that RX, I began to develop a clot in my leg. He responded appropriately and I won’t argue with him again! He was100% right! I highly recommend him!
