Hip Preservation


Hip preservation is a unique and emerging field in medicine and our specialists are able to provide young patients with leading-edge care. At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, hip preservation is highlighted by a multidisciplinary program approach that includes physicians, clinicians and researchers from orthopaedics, physical therapy, athletic training, clinical sports psychology, radiology, family practice and sports medicine.

The mission of the Hip Division is to provide minimally invasive treatment to help young and active adults resume an active lifestyle more quickly.  Reshaping and repairing the hip joint restores the anatomy of the hip and gives patients the greatest chance of avoiding early arthritis or other related hip problems in the future. The Hip Preservation Division specializes in treatment for an extensive range of hip conditions, including:

 Treatment of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), labral tears, hip dysplasia, trochanteric bursitis, lateral snapping hip and hip arthritis in the young and active patient

 Surgical expertise in hip arthroscopy, femoral pelvic osteotomies and direct anterior total hip replacement

 Complete surgical care of the active patient with hip pain
