We offer a range of surgical and nonsurgical treatments for conditions affecting the hip.
Our orthopedic specialists provide an integrated team approach to the evaluation and treatment of a wide range of hip disorders occurring in adults and children.
At NYU Langone’s Hip Center, part of NYU Langone Orthopedic Center, our team includes pediatric and adult orthopedic surgeons with different subspecialty backgrounds, as well as therapists and radiologists who share 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, or degenerative, and to take a collaborative approach to each person’s situation.
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 personalized treatment for each patient. Our services for children are provided through Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone.

- osteoarthritis, including hip arthritis in young adults and post-traumatic arthritis
- sports hip and groin injuries
- sports hernias
