Outsmarting Arthritis: Experts to Discuss Treatment of Hip Pain in Younger Adults

Preservation Techniques May Prepare Joints for a Longer Battle

Event:             9th Symposium on Joint Preserving and Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Hip co-sponsored by Hospital for Special Surgery and the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine.

Increasingly, younger adults with hip pain come to orthopedic surgeons with expectations that newer treatment options will help them avoid long-term disruptions of their active lifestyles. In recent years, hip specialists have been able to slow or reverse the progression of degenerative arthritis, keeping patients active and, in some cases, reducing the need for more extensive surgeries.

To provide orthopedic surgeons with the latest clinical data and opinions on topics related to treating young adults with hip pain, Hospital for Special Surgery, along with the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine, will co-host an educational symposium drawing on the expertise of hip specialists and other professionals from around the world.

“Our hope is that, by treating underlying hip disorders and conditions, we may be able to delay the onset or severity of arthritis later in these patients’ lives,” said Dr. Douglas Padgett, chief of the Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement Division, chief of Hip Service at Hospital for Special Surgery and co-director of the symposium.

Experts will address arthroscopic techniques that preserve the hip joint as well as less-invasive surgical techniques that can help manage the symptoms of arthritis.

Date:               Thursday, June 16 – Saturday, June 18, 2011

Time:               6:55 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 16

                        7:55 a.m. – 4:05 p.m. on Friday, June 17

                        7:55 a.m. – noon on Saturday, June 18

Location:         Thursday, Friday and Saturday:

The Roosevelt Hotel

45 East 45th Street

New York, NY 10017

Highlighted Personnel:             

Douglas E. Padgett, M.D., chief of the Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement Division, chief of Hip Service at Hospital for Special Surgery and co-director of Joint Preserving and Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Hip Symposium

Paul E. Beaulé, M.D., head of the Adult Reconstruction Service for the Ottawa Hospital, associate professor at the University of Ottawa and co-director of Joint Preserving and Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Hip Symposium

Bryan T. Kelly, M.D., co-director of the Center for Hip Preservation and sports medicine orthopedic surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery

Mario Lamontagne, Ph.D., professor of biomechanics and mechanical engineering at University of Ottawa

Michael Leunig, M.D., chief of Hip Surgery at Schulthess Clinic in Zürich, Switzerland

Derek J. McMinn, M.D., hip and knee surgeon at the McMinn Centre and BMI Edgbaston Hospital in Birmingham, U.K.

Ernest L. Sink, M.D., co-director of the Center for Hip Preservation and orthopedic surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery

Details:            The symposium includes presentations and discussions with some of the world’s top hip specialists, as well as video demonstrations of associated surgical techniques and approaches.

Some faculty will address pre-arthritic concerns – “preservation” of the hip joint to reduce hip pain and to possibly postpone further problems, such as arthritis. Others will address arthritis management and less-invasive surgical techniques.

                        “It is no longer the case that a patient with arthritis will need major hip surgery that will leave them inactive for months,” noted Dr. Paul Beaulé, head of the Adult Reconstruction Service for the Ottawa Hospital, associate professor at the University of Ottawa and co-director of the symposium. “Knowledge gained from decades of hip replacement, along with newer imaging and diagnostic techniques, have helped us to revolutionize hip surgery so that patients with arthritis may regain function as quickly as possible.”
