Gluteal tear + Hamstring tear: Whats the Fix?????

Have been diagnosed with Gluteal muscle tear with proximal retraction of muscle group; complicated by Hamstring tears @ Attachment to Ischial Tuberosity; complicated by Sciatic Nerve Impingement/Entrapement at level of sciatic notch with "broadening and flattening" of nerve; complicated by confirmed Pseudoanerysm of Inferior Illiac Artery in the same general location.   Whats the Fix?  Who and What Type of Specialist is best suited to treat this injury????  Does anyone have any specific or general ideas  for appropriate Treatment???  Or would anyone want to persue this Injury as part of "Grand Rounds"  in hopes of presenting for research????      3+ years of my life already lost!!!
................HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!         Contact thru this forum  identifier   JUD2SKI...............................Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello JUD2SKI,
Greater trochanteric pain syndrome is commonly due to gluteus minimus or medius injury rather than trochanteric bursitis. Gluteal tendinopathy most frequently occurs in late-middle aged females. Tears and tendinopathy of the gluteus medius and minimus are potentially underrecognized clinical sources of hip pain. Magnetic resonance imaging is useful in diagnosing gluteal tears. This entity is frequently a result of predisposing conditions but may arise spontaneously. This clinical problem should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with acute hip pain.

Hi,
I had a tear and just had a repair in December of 09 by Dr. David Fisher at OrthoIndy in Indiana. Go to DavidFishermd.com I think there is someone in New York at the Hospital for Special Surgery who does endoscopic repair too - good luck. I have had a great outcome so far.

Hi - did you ever have surgery and are you better yet?  How was recovery and who was your surgeon?

I too am suffering with gluteus medius tears.  
Thanks!

Hi - how long was your recovery and do you mind me asking how old you are?  Was it terribly painful?  How long on crutches and did you like your surgeon.  I too have gluteus medius tears and I'm in terrible pain!

Did you ever try PRP before surgery?
