The Hip Preservation Fellowship offers an extensive and well-rounded clinical experience in the recognition and management of hip pain in the young, active adult hip. The fellow gains concentrated specialization on hip preservation, from injury prevention strategies, injury evaluation and diagnosis to restoration of function through rehabilitation or surgical means. Both open (periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) and surgical dislocation) and arthroscopic joint preservation surgical treatment options are covered in this Fellowship program. The fellow gains increased understanding of structural abnormalities in the hip and early diagnosis techniques, which will be used to dictate the appropriate treatment plan for each individual patient.

Curriculum and Expectations

Fellows are expected to attend weekly conferences and didactic teaching, participate in a cadaver lab for additional exposure to human anatomy, open and arthroscopic surgical skills, and computer-assisted surgery techniques. Dedicated research time is offered.
