Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)
Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE)
In this childhood condition, the ball (femoral head) at the end of the thighbone slips off the neck of thighbone, causing pain in the hip joint. (Picture a scoop of ice cream dropping off a cone.) Boys ages 10 to 16 are most at risk. Learn about SCFE treatment.
This type of osteoarthritis usually starts in the inside (medial) part of the knee, which bears the most weight. Risk factors include obesity (which puts stress on the knees) and severe injury (such as those from sports).
Failed partial or total knee replacement revision
Previous implants can fail, wear out or become infected. Our orthopaedic surgeons are experts in joint revision surgery, which can ease pain or problems from previous surgeries.
This injury to the connective tissue in the knee makes up about one-third of all sports injuries. Left untreated, a torn meniscus can lead to chronic pain and a higher risk of osteoarthritis. Learn more about meniscus tear treatment.
