Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy

Any discomfort in the hip is hard to endure, but before seeking a full-blown treatment, let Dr. Carlson perform a hip arthroscopy first. This is a minimally invasive procedure where he’ll check whether there’s a serious problem in your midsection. Committing to a treatment program without knowing the real problem is never a good proposition. Have it checked first!

Dr. Carlson operates from his practice in Provo, welcoming hip scope patients from all over the Utah County.

Serious athletes and weekend warriors alike are no strangers to sports injuries. Mostly, they can get away with some ice and rest.
