Welcome to the CU Sports Medicine Hip Preservation Clinic. Our passion is diagnosing, analyzing, and treating the full spectrum of hip and pelvis disorders.
There are many physicians who perform hip replacement surgery, a viable option for some patients, but our service is dedicated to the preservation of the hip and prolonging high level physical activity. Few physicians perform hip arthroscopy, and even fewer execute complex realignment procedures of the pelvis and upper femur. Given the difficulty of accurately diagnosing hip problems, patients often exhaust possibilities through countless visits to multiple physicians.
Dr. Omer Mei-Dan is one of a select few surgeons in the nation who performs high volume cutting edge hip arthroscopy AND dysplasia realignment procedures. Rather than visiting multiple surgeons who must collaborate to devise a treatment strategy, you will see one surgeon who can integrate the complexities of a case to devise the most efficient, long-term treatment plan.
No two patients are the same; no two treatment plans are identical. Dr. Mei-Dan and his team have vast experience with everybody from people looking to get back to normal activities in life to professional athletes vying for championships. Let us explore the different options together and show you the path to a pain-free active lifestyle.

De-rotational femoral osteotomy (DFO)
I am nearing three years since my De-rotational Femoral Osteotomy by Dr. Mei Dan. It is great to be at 110% of my pre-surgery capability. Thanks to Dr. Mei Dan and his team (including physical therapy), I was set up for success. As my case, like many, was complicated, the full team was always focused on getting me back to this point. I am so excited to be able to ski, bike, hike and live my life without pain.
There is no magic wand when it comes to fixing orthopedic issues. Their patience and commitment made all the difference.
I ski race on the masters circuit and have badly injured my hips over the years. When I was ready for surgery. I talked to a number of people and created a short list of the best hip doctors in Colorado--the ones with national reputations. They all told me I was beyond help and to come back to see them when I wanted a total hip replacement. Then I went to CU Sports Medicine and met Dr. Mei-Dan. His team conducted a number of tests and he told me he could help me. He gave me multiple options and this photo is what he really gave to me--the opportunity to continue to ski race.

Wanted to thank you again for your work,
You‘ve given me back a great deal of my life! First, there is no more limping!
At 3 month from surgery, I run up to 15 km and did not even think about the hip anymore! It‘s a miracle and you are a magician! Thank you sooo much!
We are now almost 6 months out and I’ve been running a lot, also uphill and have started ski mountaineering and ski skating.
Running is a big part of me and when I took my first few steps running I had tears of joy in my eyes! No kidding!
So Thanks again
