This meeting will provide core information on hip pathology in young adults, covering the current approaches to diagnosis and treatment.

Topics include:

  • Understand the presenting symptoms of patients with pre-arthritic hip disorders
  • Be able to perform an appropriate clinical assessment and understand the investigations required to make a clear diagnosis
  • Review of current imaging techniques and their interpretation
  • Understand the role of surgical intervention and the treatment options available

  • Understand the specific challenges associated with hip replacement in young patients
