Hip Preservation Clinic

Constantly Improving Patient Outcomes by Coupling Surgical and Research Prowess

As part of a research university, we are committed to innovation and scientific excellence. Patients receive world-class medical care augmented by the latest in medical research. The team actively engages in the scientific process, ensuring patients receive the latest data-driven, safe and effective treatments.

Hip Arthroscopy

Hip arthroscopy is a minimally-invasive procedure designed to repair various abnormalities within the inside of the hip joint using a device called an arthroscope. Dr. Mei-Dan famously developed a novel technique excluding the need for a use of a perineal post which was previously required in order to perform this procedure, and by so eliminating all groin-related complications, including groin...

Labral Treatment

When the labrum is torn and requires surgical repair, bone anchors and suture material bring the torn labrum back to the rim of the socket where it will heal in an anatomic position and reconstitute the suction seal on the ball. Following labral repair, patients with hip impingement are treated with a reshaping of the hip joint using a high-speed...

Periacetabular Osteotomy (PAO)

The periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) is a surgical procedure to correct a structural deficiency of the hip socket, where the femoral head (ball) is incompletely covered by the congenitally-shallow acetabulum (socket). Several bone cuts (osteotomies) are performed around the acetabulum and it is redirected into an optimal position so that the femoral head is adequately covered. The osteotomy is then stabilized...

Derotational Femoral Osteotomy (DFO)

The derotational femoral osteotomy (DFO) is a surgical procedure to correct a poorly aligned rotational anatomy of the femur bone. The DFO procedure involves performing a bone cut (osteotomy) at the upper 1/3 of the femur bone. After completing a well planned cut we redirect the long femur bone in an optimal position to restore normal anatomy. As a result,...

Hamstring Repair

Surgical repair of the hamstring is performed under general anesthesia, and involves an open incision to identify and re-anchor the retracted hamstring tendons to their anatomical origin using 2-4 suture anchors. After surgery a knee brace is applied to protect the newly repaired tendons.

Gluteus Tendon Repair

A few suture anchors are utilized to repair torn tendons and re-attach them to the greater trochanter bone. In rare cases, for severely damaged tendons, an augmentation may be performed using an Achilles tendon allograft or artificial indicative tendon tissue. This procedure will always include a bursectomy of the GT bursa.

Osteitis Pubis Treatment

Treatment for osteitis pubis can include measures ranging from conservative treatments such as PT and steroid or PRP injections, to surgery. Surgical treatments include debridement or fusion.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a research-backed biotechnology. With its increasing use in musculoskeletal injuries, orthopedic sports medicine has increasingly relied on PRP given its use in treating musculoskeletal injuries. PRP treatment involves the injection of a small concentrated volume of healing messengers from your own plasma, directly at the site of injury. The goal is tissue healing and regeneration,...

Total Hip Arthroplasty

Hip replacement surgery is for when hip preservation surgery is no longer, or not a good option for hip arthritis, hip dysplasia, or other end stage hip disease. It is performed either under general anesthesia or sedation with spinal analgesia depending on the health and safety of the patient first and foremost.

Total Knee Arthroplasty

When the knee joint can no longer be benefited by nonsurgical treatments such as injections, physical therapy, lifestyle modifications and ambulatory aids, and when arthroscopic surgery no longer helps, a knee replacement surgery may be the best treatment option.
