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.

COVID-19 Update

Updated March 26, 2020

Plano Orthopedic, in unison with the CDC and other governmental agencies is committed to providing our patients with the highest quality care while supporting social distancing and protective measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.  The health and safety of our patients, employees and their families is our highest priority.

Office Schedule

Our office is open and operating on a limited schedule to provide in-person critical care to our patients. Currently, we are transitioning our non-critical, in-person appointments to a telehealth platform for immediate care or scheduling appointments to a future date.

Telehealth Visits

Telehealth visits allow a patient to be cared for by our physicians and providers through video and audio technology.  You will then receive a link that you can utilize from either a computer (with video and audio capability), smart devices, or tablet.

Elective Surgeries

In accordance with governmental recommendations, all elective surgical procedures will be postponed until April 22nd. We are in the process of contacting our patients to reschedule for a later date.

Patients with urgent needs, may be scheduled sooner, but only after consultation with their provider. Please anticipate a call from our clinical teams.

Safety Screenings

For those patients with urgent needs, we are asking you NOT to present yourself in our office if you are feeling unwell, have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or have come in contact with a person who has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Please contact us to reschedule your appointment. We will also be screening all patients upon entry and are asking that patients over age 18 do not bring a visitor with them. Please also wash your hands upon entering and exiting our facility and practice social distancing in the lobby.

We Appreciate your Cooperation and Understanding

We sincerely appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we work together to protect our patients and staff. We hope you are confident in Plano Orthopedics as we expand our health and safety measures during this time, while continuing to provide care to our patients.
