What is Hip Preservation?

Hip preservation surgery is a new and innovative field in sports medicine that treats patients of all ages with hip pain. The goal of hip preservation is to maintain a healthy hip joint, prevent arthritis, and delay hip replacement surgery. With these new techniques, patients are able to return to their daily activities faster and with significantly less pain. Dr. J Richard Evanson, the newest orthopedic surgeon at Plano Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center, offers these technologically advanced procedures to treat hip injuries. Dr. Evanson is a former Army orthopedic surgeon who worked with the country’s elite Airborne Rangers by addressing their hip pain and returning them to combat. Having trained at Duke university, he offers many state-of-the-art techniques for treating a broad range of hip conditions that can occur at any stage of life. One such technique provides a brand new way of performing minimally invasive surgery of the hip is safer and allows a faster recovery time; and is currently the only hip surgeon in Dallas with the most experience and capability to perform this technique.
