Do you have hip problems that cause pain, but are not severe enough to require hip replacement? These conditions were previously thought to be untreatable, but new advances in technology now allow us to successfully manage a wider range of painful hip problems. Hip preservation can reduce pain, improve your quality of life and sometimes delay the need for hip replacement surgery.
- Cam Impingement and Pincer Impingement
At Vanderbilt, we believe that the most important aspect of hip preservation surgery is the ability to combine all of a patients information (the history of the problem, physical examination, X-rays and MRI tests, and physical limitations) to make the right diagnosis and offer personalized treatment plans.

- Arthroscopic treatment of cam and pincer impingement
Note: Our team can treat hip problems for patients of all ages, and appointments can be scheduled at the Vanderbilt Orthopaedic Institute; Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt; or the Vanderbilt Bone & Joint clinic in Franklin.
