Conference Preview: “The Female Hip: Pinching, Popping and Pain”
Ronald T. Greene, MD will address “The Female Hip: Pinching, Popping and Pain” at the 6th Annual ONSF Medical Education Conference on Saturday, November 8th. Orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, radiologists, sports medicine specialists, physiatrists and physical therapists will present topics related to treatment of musculoskeletal issues unique to females.
This talk will focus on hip issues distinctly unique to women. Most hip issues for women stem from the anatomy and shape of the pelvis, which is uniquely different than the male pelvis. The female pelvis is wider to allow for childbirth. This anatomical difference can produce areas of abnormal contact between the ball/thigh bone and socket. Tissue damage may result between the points of contact. A wider pelvis can also place undue tension on the muscle and tendons around the hip, which may produce popping and/or pain. We will discuss the treatment for these various female hip conditions including conservative and operative management.
The 6th Annual ONSF Medical Education Conference will focus on treatment of musculoskeletal issues unique to females. Keynote speaker Joan Lunden, renowned author, journalist and TV host, will share her perspectives on women’s health.
