Hip Preservation Offers Hope For Prolonging High-Level Physical Activity

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 teens and active adults (13 through 60 years) 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
  • Snapping hip

Hear Omer Mei Dan, MD and Jessica Lee, MD, with CU Sports Medicine & Performance Center’s Hip Preservation Clinic, describe predisposing risk factors for and the diagnosis of painful hip conditions. They'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.
