Hip Preservation is a new approach to hip pain.  If you are experiencing persistent or chronic hip pain, the emerging field of Hip Preservation may be able to provide answers – and get you back to your activities.

Michael Merz, MD, pursued a fellowship in this new field at Boston Children’s Hospital, affiliated with Harvard Medical School.  He had comprehensive training with leaders in the field in hip conditions for patients from birth through middle age that included both arthroscopy and osteotomies of the pelvis and femur.  Like all of our Orthopedic Surgeons, Dr. Merz is trained in General Orthopedics, and can see patients for all Orthopedic issues.  His dual fellowship training is in Hip Preservation and Joint Replacement.  Specific conditions that he treats include: hip dysplasia (DDH), femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) or hip impingement, hip labral tears, Perthes disease, avascular necrosis (AVN) of the hip, femoral anteversion, and congenital hip dislocation.  Call (919) 220-5255 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Merz.
