Hip Preservation Service

Specialists and researchers are leading the way in diagnosis and treatment of hip disorders that will relieve and preserve.

The Hip Preservation Service brings together the expertise and experience of various specialists who are focused on providing joint-preserving treatment options to young, active adult patients suffering from hip pain to restore a high level of function. Historically, these patients might have been previously misdiagnosed or tolerated unrecognized symptoms, resulting in further deterioration of the hip joint.

The goal of the Hip Preservation Fellowship is to offer the fellow clinical experience in the recognition and management of hip pain in the young, active adult hip. In addition to providing clinical opportunities in outpatient settings, the program is also designed so that the fellow will have an active and broad surgical experience, including arthroscopic procedures of the hip, complex hip and pelvis osteotomies, and open surgical dislocations of the hip. The fellow will also interact with other members of the care team, including radiologists, physiatrists, physical therapists, and researchers. This multidisciplinary approach allows the fellow to broaden his or her knowledge base in a wide range of hip conditions and their respective treatment protocols.
