Hip Arthroscopy: A New Solution for Hip Pain
ONS orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist Dr. Tim Greene will talk about common causes of chronic hip pain including hip impingement, a painful and often unrecognized condition that involves a tear in the labrum. Now surgeons can repair labral damage and re-contour malformed bone using hip arthroscopy, a minimally invasive technique that uses two small incisions, a small camera and miniaturized instruments.
Dr. Greene graduated Princeton University and earned his medical degree at the Medical College of Georgia. He performed a residency in orthopedics at Emory University and served as associate team physician to the athletic teams at Georgia Tech. He completed fellowship training at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic in Vail, Colorado.

The Funny Bone: Understanding and treating common chronic elbow conditions
The “funny bone”, or elbow, can suffer a variety of conditions from overuse injuries such as “tennis elbow” and “golfer’s elbow” to ligament injuries in throwing athletes to disabling elbow arthritis. The elbow may also be the site of pinched nerve or chronic nerve entrapment disorders that cause numbness and tingling in the hand. Dr. David Wei will discuss why these problems occur, what you can do to avoid them, and the most effective treatments.
