Hip

The hip is the joint where your femur (thigh bone) meets your pelvis (hip bone). There are two main parts to the hip: a ball at the end of the femur which connects to the socket in the pelvis. The hip is referred to as the ball-and-socket joint. The hip joint can take repeated motion and wear and tear but that does not mean it could never be injured. Over time the cartilage can wear down or become damaged. Muscles and tendons in the hip can get overused and leave the hip exposed to injury.

Common Causes of Hip Injuries

Arthritis: Because of age, trauma, or other factors can cause the cartilage in the hip to break down causing the bones to rub together during any movement.

Bursitis: The swelling and inflammation of the bursa (fluid-filled sacs) can cause pain and ache in the hip and outside thigh area.

Labral Tears: The labrum is the cartilage that surrounds the hip joint. Trauma, repetitive motions, and hereditary conditions can cause painful tears in the labrum.

Snapping Hip Syndrome: This syndrome is often described by a snapping sensation in the hip when the hip is extended. Connective tissues that support the hip thicken and catch as they slide back and forth across the femur causing a snapping sensation.

Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS): Injury of the connective tissues that are located on the outer thigh and knee causing pain and tenderness between the hip and knees.

Dr. Reynolds is such an amazing doctor who is passionate and dedicates all his knowledge to help patients improve their health and injuries. I appreciate his patience and willingness to go above and beyond what is asked.

Dr Reynolds performed a very technical and complicated surgery on my son's shoulder last year. My son is (was!) a college football player and had 3 different shoulder surgeries to repair the same issue. After repeated failures I found Dr. Reynolds. He performed a Laterjet surgery which is something that is rarely done. Fast-forward a year, my son's shoulder has never had any more problems and he is stronger than ever. Thank you, Dr. Reynolds!

I went to see Dr. Raynolds because of his solid 5 star ratings. After seeing him, if I could, I would give him and his staff a solid 10 star ratings, and here is why: My 1st Impression: Beautiful and relaxing pictures of Canyons, welcoming & smiling staff, clean offices. My Time: Efficient and knowledgeable staff, and a reasonable wait time. The Best: .... Dr. Reynolds... every inch of his body exudes compassion. He listens attentively, takes his time to examine, he gives clear explanation of the injury, and answers all questions with care. Everything he did convinced me that I was lucky to have found him. (Thank you Yelp) :) I highly recommend Dr. Raynolds to my friends, my families and to anyone who's looking for the BEST and trustworthy surgeon. ~ Wishing you a smooth and quick recovery!

I went to see Dr. Reynolds last week because I have chronic pain in my hip. He was incredible helpful and knowledgeable. He greeted me with a warm smile and was patient and kind, showing me exactly what the problem is and the treatment alternatives. He spent a lot of time with me and I am extremely happy with the treatment plan he has for me. I can highly recommend him.

Dr Reynolds is a Rock Star! I ripped a bicep tendon clean off my forearm in September 2016. After countless phone calls to the huge "Non Profit" hospital chain I usually go to, and the realization that they wouldn't be able to see me in several weeks, I decided to look elsewhere. My son had previously been treated by Dr. Haber at a small clinic in Campbell, so I called the clinic, and got an appointment with his colleague, Dr Kerisimasi Reynolds. I have to say that I was a little hesitant at first, because of his young age, and I was wondering how many surgeries he had performed. Anyway, I got a really good vibe from him, and he was super professional and explained everything really well in terms I could understand. He got me an MRI the same day, a follow up visit the next day I think, and he was able to do the surgery within the next 5 days. I decided to go for it, and it was a 1 hour surgery with a long recovery. This was in September, and I have my last physical therapy session next week. That said, I'd go under the knife for Dr Kerisimasi again anytime if I needed to. He's totally on top of his game, knows a lot about all the latest advancements in orthopedic surgery, etc. He also followed up with personal phone calls, emails, and even gave me his cell phone number in case I had post operation questions or concerns. I've been very active my whole life in a variety of sports and outdoors activities, and he has the mindset that he wants to enable you to get back to those activities as soon as possible, which I really appreciate. I give him an A+. He performed a state-of-the-art tendon reattachment surgery, and I'm basically fully recovered by now. I'm lifting weights, working without pain, and hope to be back in my river kayak this spring! I hope I don't have to see him in the operating room again, but if I do, I know I'm in good hands :-)
