  • Provides international expertise from the authorship and clear diagnostic and interventional guidance
  • Comprehensive and clinically relevant to professionals involved in the field
  • Focuses on  the young adult hip and in particular the whole spectrum of hip and groin disease in sports together

The Young Adult Hip in Sport covers the full breadth of hip problems and injuries that challenge us, reflecting the recent revolution in understanding of the pathophysiology of hip disease and of hip injuries in sport. This increase in interest has delivered many new investigational and interventional modalities to demystify the discipline. This has encompassed an increased understanding of how the hip develops and functions, improved imaging modalities, and a dramatic increase in joint preserving surgery and the ever expanding array of arthroscopic techniques that are now available.

The Young Adult Hip in Sport gathers together experts on hip pathology and hip disease and reviews the anatomy, the imaging and the variety of surgical modalities available for the full spectrum of presentations of hip disease ranging from problems in childhood and adolescence that limit activity, all the way through to sports-related problems with articular cartilage, the labrum and impingement. This book is therefore an essential reference for all involved in the diagnosis and management of sports-related hip pain in young adults and will be an invaluable resource for both experienced and trainee orthopaedic surgeons, sports medicine physicians and therapists.
