Hip care at Mayo Clinic Orthopedics and Sports Medicine

April 20, 2022

Overview

This video presents a multifaceted care team that works to improve hip function at Mayo Clinic Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, located in Rochester and Minneapolis, Minnesota. From CT scans, the team constructs three-dimensional recreations of a patient's hip damage to look at the case individually and plan for surgery. They employ the latest operative and nonoperative hip treatments — repairing hip dysplasia, femoroacetabular impingement and labral damage — and perform labral reconstruction.

The video includes the story of a patient who played Division I basketball and suffered pain in both hips, which Mayo Clinic orthopedic surgeons diagnosed as impingement. The patient is now pain-free and can dunk basketballs again.
