Abstract and Introduction

Abstract

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, in collaboration with the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, the Hip Society, the American College of Radiology, the American Physical Therapy Association, the Limb-lengthening and Reconstruction Society, and the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America, released Management of Osteoarthritis of the Hip: Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guideline. The complete guideline is available on OrthoGuidelines (www.orthoguidelines.org). The guideline is intended to assist those taking care of patients with osteoarthritis of the hip in making decisions regarding the most appropriate treatment. A group of experts with knowledge of orthopaedic surgery, physical therapy, and musculoskeletal radiology developed 18 recommendations for nonoperative and operative treatment based on relevant literature. A companion article illustrates the use of these guidelines by discussing specific case examples and evidence-based treatments for osteoarthritis of the hip.
