Chris George, MD, orthopedic surgeon at ValleyOrtho, is pleased to present “Hip Pain 101,” a virtual discussion via Zoom, on Wednesday, June 1. The presentation is part of Valley View University (VVU), a series of free educational webinars hosted by Valley View.

From taking a short walk to bending over to tie a shoe, hip pain and stiffness can interfere with simple tasks as well as one’s ability to hike, bike, ski and be active. Hip pain can have many causes and treatments should be tailored to each individual. In this 20-minute discussion, followed by an open Q&A, Dr. George will discuss common causes of hip pain due to sports injury, overuse, as well as age-related degeneration. He will also discuss conservative and surgical treatment options, including advances in robotic-assisted joint replacements.

Dr. George, who has been providing orthopedic care to patients in the Roaring Fork Valley since 2013, specializes in sports medicine, hip arthroscopy, anterior muscle sparing total hip replacement, and knee reconstruction and replacement. With minimally invasive and arthroscopic treatment options, Dr. George strives to return patients to the lifestyle and activities they desire.
