Hip fix for younger patients
Nicole Sharp is a pediatric nurse at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital. That means she's on her feet for long hours. She'd also been an avid runner, hiker and skier. But one day while taking off her boots, she felt a twinging, shooting pain go through her hip.
Michael J. Salata, M.D. was recently recognized by The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) for his basic science research on hip arthroscopy. Dr. Salata was awarded the 2011 Aircast Award for Basic Science by the AOSSM. This prestigious award is given to the best paper in Basic Science submitted by a sports medicine fellow, and is presented at the AOSSM Annual Meeting.
This study "Effect of Acetabulum Rim Recession on Anterior Rim Angle: A Cadaveric Study", was presented at the 2011 AOSSM Annual Meeting at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California on July 7-10, 2011 by Dr. Salata. Dr. Salata has a clinical interest in the treatment of young adults with hip pain and completed fellowships in both sports medicine and arthroscopy as well as a specialized fellowship specifically dedicated to the field of hip arthroscopy.
