Young Adult Hip Preservation Program

The Young Adult Hip Preservation Program offers evaluation, testing and treatment for hip conditions that affect older teens and adults in their 20s and 30s. In many cases, these conditions are best treated by experts who have experience with the potentially underlying pediatric hip condition.

Hip Preservation Options for Young Adults

Why Choose Us?

For some, a hip disorder doesn't become problematic or painful until adulthood — but it often stems from an underlying pediatric hip condition. The treatment for congenital, pediatric hip disorders requires the knowledge and expertise of doctors who understand the full developmental spectrum of the human hip joint.

Our Team

Our team of hip specialists is actively researching the conditions that cause hip deformities, investigating new surgical techniques, and tracking long-term outcomes for patients with hip disorders.
