Hip Preservation Surgery
Regardless of age, our mobility and stability are dependent upon the healthy functioning of our hips. When a hip disorder is not diagnosed or treated, it can foster other related hip issues, including hip disease or severe degeneration. Treatments and procedures for hip preservation are founded on the idea of the early identification of common hip problems may be addressed with a surgical procedure to improve the mechanics of the hip joint.
TOC diagnoses and treats conditions of hip disease and degeneration with early intervention techniques, including periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) and hip arthroscopy. These techniques may aid in the delay or prevention of painful arthritis, which could lead to hip replacement surgery. Team TOC includes 16 fellowship-trained hip surgeons offering complete and comprehensive care for almost any hip disorder, such as hip dysplasia, hip impingement, or avascular necrosis.
Hip preservation focuses on treatment to relieve pain and preserve the function of the joint. This may include minimally invasive surgical treatments for quicker recovery to lessen the need for extensive surgeries. There are joint-preserving treatment options for young and active adult patients and advanced imaging and testing for early hip disease to render an accurate diagnosis and recommended treatment.
