In the area of hip and knee conditions, Dr. Ashberg’s training in hip preservation surgery allows him to provide minimally invasive treatment of the hip in this cutting edge, rapidly developing area of orthopedic surgery.
The hip, similar to other areas of the body, is subject to congenital, developmental, and post-traumatic conditions. If left untreated, these conditions can lead to pain, arthritis, and potentially a hip replacement early in life. The goal of hip preservation is to prevent or delay the early onset of arthritis or the need for a joint replacement.
Hip preservation treats a full spectrum of hip disorders, including but not limited to: labral tears, hip impingement, hip dysplasia, and osteoarthritis. Candidates for hip preservation include newborns up to people age 45. Young athletes whose activities involve extreme hip motions—such as golf, hockey, gymnastics, soccer, long distance running, or cycling—would benefit from preservation techniques, in particular. Hip preservation is rapidly evolving and the latest arthroscopic techniques allow for a broad range of patients, including high-performance athletes, to maintain normal hip function.
This article contains a list of conditions that can be addressed with hip preservation surgery. Please note that this is only intended as a guide. Only a qualified orthopaedic specialist can accurately diagnose your condition and recommend a treatment plan. For a comprehensive evaluation of your hip pain, please schedule an appointment
Dr. Ashberg performs arthroscopic treatment of conditions such as acetabular labral tears, femoracetabular impingement (FAI), and borderline dysplasia.
In addition, Dr. Ashberg also offers minimally invasive, robotic assisted (MAKO), anterior hip replacement surgery, with an emphasis on rapid recovery, including out patient surgery as an option.
Dr Ashberg is the first physician in South Florida to use the Stryker Pivot Guardian Post-less Distraction System for Hip Arthroscopy, which significantly improves the safety of this procedure by decreasing pressure on the groin. Additionally, Dr Ashberg utilizes customized, 3D preoperative planning, using Stryker Hip Map and Hip Check, for your hip arthroscopy to ensure the most accurate results.
