Patients of CU Hip Clinic receive the highest standard of care in state-of-the-art facilities. Research-backed innovative techniques are employed to achieve the best possible patient outcomes. The surgical community also benefits from the myriad of publications and devices produced by the team, and can directly apply the learnings to their own patient care.
In addition to surgical prowess, Dr. Mei-Dan has expanded the field of orthopedic medicine via inventing novel techniques and devices. This includes the development of revolutionary hip arthroscopy distractor without a perineal post as well as cannula and bone graft devices developed in house.
The comprehensive Complete University of Colorado Hip Preservation Fellowship is located in Boulder. The Fellowship is directly trained in a true apprenticeship model by Dr. Omer Mei-Dan, and spans either six or twelve months depending on prior experience and anticipated future practice.
After painstakingly developing new techniques and validating with methodical research, the team is keen to share relevant findings with the scientific and surgical communities. Presentation topics range from research on bilateral simultaneous hip arthroscopy for hip impingement to hamstring tears and supporting surgical techniques.
Differentiating between two or more potential sources of pain (and mainly when both Dysplasia and impingement are present) is not always straightforward. In many cases, a comprehensive physical exam coupled with analysis of advanced imaging modalities can point the clinician towards the right direction.
The publications below can assist in establishing the right treatment diagnosis and subsequent treatment strategy in patients with hip pain.
