Instead of seeing an orthopedic surgeon for the hip and back pain, I suggest a rheumatologist. A rheumatologist is much better equipped to evaluate joint issues associated with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases. Of course, if your hip/back issues are the result of injury or overuse then of course, the orthopod is appropriate.
