The understanding of nonarthroplasty treatment of hip disorders has grown in breadth and depth in recent years. Surgeons are better able to recognize the causes of hip abnormalities and the treatments that are most appropriate. Recent evidence on common disorders of the hip, as well as their treatment and results, have been reported in studies that have examined labral tears, chondral injuries, femoroacetabular impingement, and dysplasias. The safety, efficacy, and patient outcomes of alternate diagnostic techniques, treatments, and surgical techniques (including but not limited to physical examination, radiographs, CT, MRI, surgical dislocation, arthroscopy, and periacetabular osteotomy) have also been reported. A broad yet thorough understanding by the orthopaedic surgeon of various hip preservation techniques can improve the quality of care and life for patients and provide incentive for further research.
