Dear Colleagues,

Hip Preservation has become quite popular in the west and is offering significant relief to a large volume of young patients with incongruous hips .

At present in the infancy in India , hip preservation offers hope to numerous adolescent and young patients with early arthritis of the hip to prevent , postpone or eliminate the need for hip replacement.

Reshaping the hip to improve its biomechanics and make the hip more spherical and congruous is the cornerstone of treatment in situations such as Healed Perthes, SCFE , FAI . Acetabular Dysplasia .

This goal can be achieved by Arthoscopy , Safe Surgical Dislocation of the Hip with Osteochondroplasty , Labral Repair or the Ganz type of Acetabular osteotomy .

We take great pleasure in inviting you to participate in the MOA Meet The Master Programme on Hip Preservation to be conducted in Pune . The Master for the Meeting is a renowned Pediatric and Adult Hip reconstruction surgeon from Chicago USA : Dr Prasad Gourineni ,who will be taking us through various aspects of diagnosis and management which will include case discussions, lectures, videos etc.

The highlight will be live demonstration surgery for Hip preservation .We urge you to register for the meeting ASAP to avoid disappointment . Be a part of the new conceptual shift in managing young Arthritics.
