Course Description

The aim of the course is to provide a greater understanding of normal and pathological states of the athlete’s hip. The course will provide a complete overview of the evaluation, non-surgical treatment and surgical correction of the athlete’s hip in all compartments: central, peripheral, peri-trochanteric and posterior. Integration of clinical expertise from outstanding local and national faculty with the best available clinical evidence into the decision-making process for patient care will be presented to address clinical challenges relevant to every day practice. The psychomotor skills portion of the course will provide attendees a clear rationale and practical treatment algorithms to address both simple and complex hip pathologies.
