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.

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!

Aside from being a phenominal surgeon he shows great compassion for his patients. For anyone needing a knee or hip, you will not find a better surgeon.

Wonderful! He really takes the time to offer his patients the best care. Would not consider anyone else for hip or knee. His skills are amazing, plus he really demonstrates that he wants his patients to get better!

Dr. Christensen is amazing. His assistant Brittney, is amazing also. I very highly recommend them. The Specialty Surgery Center was outstanding.

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.
