Femoroacetabular impingement of the hip, or FAI, is a diagnosis that has really grown over the last several years and become more common.
As rehabilitation specialists, we often work with these patients prior to surgery, as well as after surgical intervention.
In the episode, I talk with Mike Reiman from Duke University about FAI, including a bit on the history, diagnosis, nonoperative treatment, and surgical procedure.
Mike Reiman is an Associate professor at Duke University; role includes primary academic teaching, research and clinical practice. Mike received his PhD from Copenhagen University, a top 100 international university.
