Research shows that early intervention for hip problems — whether congenital, developmental, post-traumatic or sports-related — may slow their progression. Hip preservation is a type of intervention for young, active adults that can improve the structure and function of the hip joint.

Conditions that may benefit from hip preservation include hip impingement, hip dysplasia, avascular necrosis, athletic hip injury, hip labral tear and snapping hip.

Hear Austin W. Chen, M.D., the area’s specialty-trained and distinguished expert in hip preservation, describe predisposing risk factors for and the diagnosis of painful hip conditions. He’ll then discuss the latest hip-preserving treatments — both non-surgical and minimally invasive surgical options — that can help you return to an active lifestyle.
