A Mayo Clinic surgeon explains test results to a patient.

Your Mayo Clinic care team

Specialists in orthopedic surgery, sports medicine, radiology and physical therapy collaborate as a team to evaluate your problem and determine the most appropriate treatment for you. This means that you're not getting just one opinion — you benefit from the knowledge and experience of each specialist on the multidisciplinary team.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

With state-of-the-art research and laboratory facilities, Mayo Clinic orthopedic specialists use sophisticated imaging tests and comprehensive physical examinations to obtain a detailed, accurate diagnosis of your hip condition.

Mayo Clinic orthopedic surgeons are highly experienced with minimally invasive repair techniques to repair some of the problems that can be caused by hip dysplasia, such as a hip labral tear. In some cases, the hip joint is so misaligned that the pelvis must be surgically modified (periacetabular osteotomy) to correct the alignment of the hip socket.

Nationally recognized expertise

The orthopedic program at Mayo Clinic has earned a national reputation as a top hospital for hip repair and treatment. The program is recognized for its expertise in diagnostic and minimally invasive repair procedures as well as for its advanced research into improved surgical techniques.
