Hip Preservation Clinic

Hip pain due to overuse or injury can put a halt on your life. Johns Hopkins hip preservation clinic helps people with chronic hip pain get back to doing what they enjoy. Hip preservation is a minimally invasive approach to treating certain hip conditions, such as hip labral tears and hip impingement, that don't require a hip replacement. This approach may be appropriate for active people under the age 45 and can help delay or even eliminate the need for a future hip replacement.
