Hip Preservation at UW
Hip Preservation

About the Program



DESCRIPTION FROM UW HEALTH (RETOOL THIS): Hip preservation uses different surgical techniques to treat hip pain and restore hip function.

It can help you reduce your risk for premature arthritis and hip replacement surgery in your later years. Hip preservation procedures may be beneficial for patients who experience pain due to a torn hip labrum, athletes who put their hips through extreme ranges of motion, and people who are diagnosed with hip dysplasia and have pain related to undercoverage of the hip socket.

Hip preservation is rapidly evolving, and the latest techniques allow for a broad range of patients, including high-performance athletes, to maintain normal hip function.
