Child and Young Adult Hip Preservation

Child and Young Adult Hip Preservation

The hip preservation service focuses on the nonoperative and operative management of all hip-related conditions in children of all ages and young adults. We offer comprehensive hip care to patients with congenital, acquired, traumatic, and sports-related conditions.

Our team of specialists employs the latest technology to offer arthroscopic and minimally invasive care when indicated. This can be specifically valuable in treating femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). Osteotomies (cutting the bone to alter the position or shape) are employed for more complex deformities or conditions not amenable to arthroscopic treatment.

We are pleased to provide second opinions for any hip-related condition.
