ONS physicians regularly present talks on subjects ranging from non-operative treatments for back and neck pain to sports injury prevention to common musculoskeletal conditions related to aging. Our patient education programs are designed to raise awareness of solutions to common health issues and bring to light medical advances that are available to the Greenwich community. ONS programs also support a national emphasis that encourages individuals to be actively involved in their own healthcare through education.

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.
