Welcome to the

Hip Center

We offer a range of surgical and nonsurgical treatments for problems affecting the hip.

NYU Langone’s Hip Center, part of the Center for Musculoskeletal Care, provides an integrated team approach to the evaluation and treatment of a wide range of hip disorders occurring in patients of all ages. 

In recent years, many surgical and nonsurgical options have become available for the treatment of hip disorders. Our team includes surgeons with different subspecialty backgrounds, as well as therapists and radiologists who have in common a specific interest in disorders of the hip. 

This unique collaborative approach allows us to provide care for all hip conditions, whether they are developmental, traumatic (due to injury), or degenerative, and to consider each person’s situation from a broad perspective. 

Patients with complex conditions affecting the hip and those who are candidates for surgery may be discussed in a team conference, during which we plan a personalized treatment for each patient.

Our Specialties and Services

Our specialists have vast experience diagnosing and treating a broad range of conditions affecting the hip, including:

  • osteoarthritis, including hip arthritis in young adults and post-traumatic arthritis
  • fractures of the hip and pelvis, including fractures that are slow to heal
  • hip dysplasia 
  • femoral-acetabular impingement
  • hip labrum tears
  • sports hip and groin injuries
  • sports hernias
  • snapping hip syndrome
  • avascular necrosis of the hip, which is the death of bone tissue due to a lack of blood supply

We offer many surgical and nonsurgical treatment options, such as:

  • physical therapy
  • hip injections, including platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections
  • hip arthroscopy procedures for labrum tears and hip impingement
  • hip and pelvis osteotomy, including Ganz Bernese osteotomy or periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) for hip dysplasia 
  • core decompression and bone grafting for avascular necrosis of the hip.

We also specialize in minimally invasive, single-incision total hip replacements, such as anterior total hip replacement (A-THR), which for many patients can be performed as an outpatient procedure.
