Your orthopedic surgeon can evaluate and advise you best about this hip pain. If located on the side of the hip, bursitis is a possibility. If pain is toward the groin, arthritis of the hip joint would be more likely. Differences in leg length or abnormal gait from prior knee issues may have played a role.
