Hip Treatments

The various treatments for "bad" hips depend on just how bad and how they are bad. But remember, the best thing is prevention. See the section on hips under
topics for a more detailed discussion of hip growth structure. This section is slanted toward intervention.

Some new (new enough to worry about longevity) hip surgery is given exhaustive detail.  We need some heavy group thinking in this arena which has been stagnant too long.

The sections on S.L.O.B. (aka B3) and Cafe' Door hip methods are updated. The difficult cases that were pushing S.L.O.B. too far have now a safer haven in the Cafe' Door surgery.  It is new but so far very encouraging, maybe a 'game changer'.
