Supartz - Is this injection ever used in the hip joint?

Unfortunately not. The joint is way too deep to be injectable. I had these injections in my knee and that needle was big enough! I'd hate to see what they had to use to get to my hip! But I understand your question because I actually asked my Dr for the same thing hoping it would help my arthritis. Hope this helps.

Yes, this is used and is very effective. And the needle is fairly large, it looked like handle bars. I only had one hip done, and now the other is having pain. I should have had both done around the same time.

What type of M.D. performed this procedure? My orthopedic surgeon is recommending hip replacement surgery, I'm not quite ready for that at 54.

I would like to buy some time.

What would you recommend?
