Description: In treatment of the contemporary young hip, collaboration between hip preservation and arthroplasty surgeons is essential. An understanding of the limitations of hip preservation and how these procedures may affect subsequent arthroplasty should guide hip preservation. When indicating THA in very young patients, specific technical and psychosocial considerations are crucial for the success of the procedure and the patient. This event will bring together experts for a lively discussion on treatment of the young hip.
1. The limits of hip preservation procedures.
2. How to perform hip preservation procedures without making later THA more difficult.
3. Technical considerations in the very young THA.
4. Psychosocial considerations in the very young THA.
