If left for too long, the tears encourage the development of arthritis,” Domb says. “My No. 1 goal is to cure arthritis through early diagnosis and treatment of the original injury. When labrum tears are treated quickly, arthritis is prevented before it can set in.
The American Hip Institute Research Foundation is honored to have had not one, but two of its studies selected as finalists for Arthroscopy Journal awards. The study by Domb et al on "Circumferential Labral Reconstruction in the
Primary Setting" was selected for Clinical Research Excellence and the study on how "Surgeon Experience in Hip Arthroscopy Affects Outcomes" was selected for Systematic Review Research Excellence. Congratulations to the researchers
Orthopedics Today interviews Dr. Benjamin Domb on the newest study from the American Hip Institute, showing their hip arthroscopy procedure was successful in treating hips with borderline dysplasia and ligamentum Teres tears.
Throughout my career, I have often heard people reference the hip as the wallflower or “forgotten joint,” when the hip is one of the largest and most important joints in your body. While the hip does allow for a wide range of movement,
it is not indestructible, and many people of all ages suffer from hip pain and injuries. It’s also a difficult area for patients to localize and articulate to their physician when they experience discomfort, which often delays
treatment or leads to misdiagnosis.

Dr. Domb lectured on "SEX Without Hip Pain" at the Chicago Ultimate Women's Exposition, with an attendance of 18,000 of Chicago's proud women.
"Hip injuries can interfere with sexual intercourse for a woman, and the associated pain can cause decreased libido", said Dr. Domb. "Fortunately, many injuries can be treated non-surgically, or with minimally invasive procedures."
The American Hip Institute recently opened its doors as the first clinic in the U.S. to specialize exclusively in hip injuries. Its mission is "to serve as a resource to surgeons and their patients; to educate, innovate and offer
the most advanced and comprehensive treatment options for injuries of the hip joint".
Sciatica is one of those things that you might think you won�t have to worry about until later in life. As one Well+Good editor (hi, Abbey!) recently learned the hard way, however, back and hip pain symptoms can and do happen to
active younger people, and our lifestyles, which tend to involve extremes of intense activity and longterm sitting, are mostly to blame.
In this study, we sought to raise the bar for success in hip arthroplasty, essentially defining success as a surgery that the patient forgets that they had. Using the new forgotten joint score, we were able to show that the patients
in our series almost never think about their hip surgery, as their resurfaced or replaced hips feel like and function like a normal hip,� study co-author Benjamin G. Domb, MD, told Healio.com/Orthopedics. �At our institution,
resurfacing is considered an excellent surgical option for the middle-aged, active male with hip arthritis.
