What makes us Different at the Hip & Pelvis Institute, San Francisco?

Something that sets us apart at the Hip & Pelvis Institute is the fact that we are entirely focused on issues relating to the hip and pelvis. We are very proud of the fact that we now have a registry of well over 3,000 hip cases where we’ve been able to demonstrate very good outcomes with very low risk. This experience allows us to not only streamline the way we work but it also means that we are very familiar with the spectrum of potential problems and pitfalls, deformities or complexities relating to hips.

Our team is also a key differentiator. All are experienced, highly trained people, in roles where they perform their best. All team members collaborate to care for patients throughout their entire journeys from initial consultation through to surgery and follow-up care.
