Types of Disorders Treated and Procedures Performed

Dr. Clohisy emphasizes comprehensive surgical treatment of the hip. Therefore, his practice is designed to provide the optimal surgical care to patients with a wide spectrum of hip disorders. Fundamental to this practice philosophy is an emphasis on diagnostic accuracy, multidisciplinary care and technical expertise in a full armamentarium of hip procedures. With this approach, “patient-specific” treatment is realized and patient care is optimized.

The following diagnoses are treated:

  • Developmental dysplasia of the hip (hip dysplasia, DDH, CHD, etc.)
  • Perthes deformities of the hip
  • Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE)
  • Hip impingement disorders
  • Femoroacetabular impingement
  • Osteoarthritis of the hip
  • Rheumatoid arthritis of the hip
  • Osteonecrosis of the femoral head
  • Failed total hip replacement
  • Post-traumatic hip arthritis
  • Post-traumatic nonunions and malunions of the hip
  • Periprosthetic hip fractures
  • Skeletal dysplasias of the hip

The following procedures are performed:

  • Periacetabular osteotomy (PAO)
  • Revision (“redo”) periacetabular osteotomy
  • Hip arthroscopy (labral repair, impingement procedures, tendon releases, articular cartilage repair, adhesion release, etc.)
  • Surgical hip dislocation
  • Hip cartilage grafting procedures
  • Proximal femoral osteotomy
  • Slipped capital femoral epiphysis reduction and fixation
  • Primary hip replacement (anterior, posterior, less invasive)
  • Complex hip replacement
  • Revision hip replacement
  • Surface replacement arthroplasty (hip resurfacing)
