Goals and Characteristics
The goal is to offer the fellow 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 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.
There is a formal education process consisting of weekly conferences and didactic teaching. The fellow will also have access to a cadaver lab for additional exposure to human anatomy, open and arthroscopic surgical skills, and computer assisted surgery techniques. The fellow is required to participate in research projects, and opportunity for both clinical and basic science research is available.
Our Hip Preservation Fellowship Program parallels the Hospital for Special Surgery’s mission of patient care, education and research.
Eligible candidates will have completed a fellowship program in Sports Medicine, Adult Reconstruction, Pediatric Orthopedics, or Orthopedic Trauma.
