The Chicago Hip Preservation Fellowship - 2020-2021 and 2021-2022

Focusing on Hip Arthroscopy and Joint Preservation: Fellows will be trained in all aspects of hip preservation surgery, and will gain a unique foundation in complex hip arthroscopy. Training will focus heavily on minimally-invasive techniques for treatment of labral tears, FAI, subspine and ischiofemoral impingement, dysplasia, and microinstability.

Comprehensive surgical hip skills include:

• Arthroscopic complex labral repair

• Circumferential labral reconstruction

• 3D planning and correction of FAI

• Capsular plication and reconstruction

• Ligamentum teres reconstruction

• Osteochondral management (microfracture, subchondroplasty, osteoarticular allograft)

• Endoscopic gluteus medius repair

• Endoscopic hamstring repair

 

Also included are peri-acetabular osteotomy, Birmingham hip resurfacing, and hip arthroplasty (direct anterior, posterior, and Mako robotic-assisted).

This highly specialized fellowship prepares trainees for a focused niche practice in Hip Preservation. Fellows with academic interests benefit from the strong research program, based in a collaborative, learning environment. The fellowship is ideally suited for trainees graduating from a sports medicine fellowship who wish to obtain further training in a second fellowship. However, application is also open to graduating residents. Salary up to $80k annually. http://www.americanhipinstitute.org
