Advances in treating hip pain to be focus of International Society for Hip Arthroscopy meeting

Sep 26, 2009 - 4:00:00 AM
Research highlights include outcomes data presented by Special Surgery's Dr. Buly and Bryan Kelly, M.D., co-director of the Center for Hip Pain and Preservation at Hospital for Special Surgery and a study by Marc Philippon, M.D., of the Steadman Hawkins Research Foundation in Colorado, on how to assess the ability of a patient to return to sports after arthroscopy. Two imaging advances, one on techniques that allow greater visibility into the hip joint and a second on a method that may identify the earliest onset of arthritis will be presented, as well as a British study on siblings that addresses the genetics underlying hip impingement.

 
[RxPG] Recent advances in diagnostic imaging techniques and hip arthroscopy procedures are giving physicians and surgeons better tools with which to treat hip pain. The 2009 International Society for Hip Arthroscopy meeting, hosted by Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, brings together leading surgeons from all over the world to take an in-depth look at hip arthroscopy and its potential benefits.

This inaugural meeting by the International Society for Hip Arthroscopy will concentrate on the rapidly changing field of arthroscopic hip surgery, said Robert Buly, M.D., attending orthopedic surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery and course director of the ISHA meeting. Presentations will be focused on the current research and outcomes data associated with both common and new procedures.

Hip arthroscopy, a minimally invasive treatment option, is an alternative for some patients over open, invasive surgery. Through a few tiny incisions, doctors are able to insert tools to trim bone or repair cartilage. Previously, surgeons only had the option of opening up the entire hip with a large incision and dislocating the hip to access the joint. This procedure can be used to treat patients with femoro-acetabular impingement (FAI), also known as hip impingement, where there is a change in the bony form of the hip joint causing a decreased range of motion and pain, damage to the cartilage within the hip joint, such as labral tears, and other conditions.

It is not uncommon for hip pain due to hip impingement or labral tears to be misdiagnosed. The difficulty in diagnosing the underlying causes of hip pain doesn't affect only professional athletes like Alex Rodriguez, Carlos Delgado or Mike Lowell, who have been in the news for their injuries and subsequent treatment, but week-end warriors and everyday active individuals as well. Hospital for Special Surgery's Center for Hip Pain and Preservation uses the latest imaging technology and arthroscopic techniques to provide those experiencing hip pain with proper diagnosis and treatment.

Research highlights include outcomes data presented by Special Surgery's Dr. Buly and Bryan Kelly, M.D., co-director of the Center for Hip Pain and Preservation at Hospital for Special Surgery and a study by Marc Philippon, M.D., of the Steadman Hawkins Research Foundation in Colorado, on how to assess the ability of a patient to return to sports after arthroscopy. Two imaging advances, one on techniques that allow greater visibility into the hip joint and a second on a method that may identify the earliest onset of arthritis will be presented, as well as a British study on siblings that addresses the genetics underlying hip impingement.

The meeting will take place in New York on October 9 and 10, 2009 at the Roosevelt Hotel on Madison Avenue and 45th Street.
