Hip Preservation is dedicated to diagnosing and treating conditions of the hip that, if left untreated, may lead to premature arthritis of the hip joint. Hip dysplasia, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), and other abnormalities are common sources of hip pain in young, active patients. While these conditions can be due to a number of causes, early intervention can lead to improved function and decreased pain, and may prevent joint deterioration.
A team approach to young, active patients with hip pain gives the greatest chance for successful treatment. Our surgeons work closely with primary care sports medicine physicians, physical therapists, and radiologists to achieve the correct diagnosis and provide optimal treatment. Our physicians are actively working with other internationally recognized leaders in the in the field of Hip Preservation to research the causes of hip joint abnormalities and assess innovative treatment options for our patients.
