After 13 years of pain, I finally found out that I have a Gluteus medius tear and a labral tear. I have found a doc in Chicago (Dr. Domb)who does GM tears and a doc in Colorado ( Dr.Philipon) who does labral tears. Prior to this, every doctor told me I had radiated pain coming from my spine. I no longer run (30 years of running) and don't lift weighs (10 yrs ) either. I now hurts to just walk, stand. etc. I can't put weight on my right side going up steps. I'm 58 and feel like I'm 90. I need to decide where to go for surgery. I've read that there is a great doc in the NYC area but I can't seem to find him in a google search.
Well, I would suggest looking for medical facilities that offer orthopedic care in a particular region and then looking at their doctor profiles. It might also be helpful to comment a few patient reviews before deciding on one.
Hope this is helpful.
