About this event

  • Date and time Thu 29 Jun 2023 from 8:30am to 5:00pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Orthopaedics, Orthopaedic Research UK

Join this event to increase awareness of hip preservation surgery, an emerging technique in treating hip pathology, and the specific problems associated with joint replacement in young patients. Event participants will learn a range of cutting-edge hip techniques, from preservation to replacement, and the indications for these procedures to widen the use of these specialist techniques within the UK. 

This meeting will provide an overview of the diagnosis, surgical treatment and outcomes of young adult hip disorders from adolescence to adulthood, address the indications for hip preservation, and the latest advancements and techniques in arthroscopic and osteotomy hip preservation surgery in various patient populations. The indications for prosthetic joint replacement using modern implants will also be covered.  

During this event, 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 and osteotomy in the treatment of hip dysplasia and femoroacetabular impingement and become familiar with the non-arthroplasty hip register (NAHR)
  • Appreciate when joint replacement is required and become familiar with modern arthroplasty techniques

The programme will be delivered through various methods including short lectures, case-based discussions, keynote speakers and Q&A. The speakers represent a unique cohort of hip preservation and arthroplasty surgeons pioneering techniques within an important patient population, making this conference at the RSM a unique, high-yield opportunity for trainees and practising surgeons looking to expand their hip surgery training.
