At Cincinnati Children’s, we are dedicated to the best lifelong care for our patients. Our team is unique in that we treat all hip conditions from a hip preservation standpoint. That means we develop treatment plans that will relieve pain, maintain and/or return the function of the hip, and prevent or significantly delay the need for hip replacement.

For our patients at any age, we focus on monitoring and proactively treating the condition while keeping the future, long-term health of the hip at the forefront of all decisions. We use the newest hip preservation techniques pioneered within the last 30 years.

“We continue to follow and care for patients into their 40s, which is different from most other pediatric providers. We take care of the hip regardless of age.”
