This third episode of the Hip Symposium will provide an overview of the diagnosis, treatment and outcomes of young adult hip disorders, with a focus on the preservation of the native joint by utilising techniques such as arthroscopy and osteotomy. This webinar will consist of short instructional talks on key aspects of diagnosis, imaging and hip preserving treatment as well as updates on emerging hip technologies. The programme is designed to be interactive with ample time for audience questions and discussion.

The event will be chaired by Michael Pearse, incoming President of the Orthopaedic Section of RSM. Topics will be delivered by single expert speakers with illustrative and interactive case presentations with ample time for audience Q&A.  

During this webinar, you will:

  • Recognise the clinical signs and common presentations of pre-arthritic hip conditions and appreciate the diagnostic imaging modalities used to assess the hip joint. 
  • Understand the role of arthroscopy in the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement, as well as the indications for osteotomy. 
  • Become familiar with the non-arthroplasty hip register (NAHR), which collects longitudinal outcome data for any type of hip surgery other than arthroplasty.
