Dr. White performs his 3,000th Hip Arthroscopy

Friday, November 3, 2017

On November 3, 2017, Dr. White and his team hosted a Labral Reconstruction Course in Denver, Colorado for surgeons learning his technique. In addition to this, his first procedure of the day was the 3,000th hip arthroscopy that was entered into his database. This incredible milestone marks the culmination of many hours that he and his team have committed to patients to get them back to the life that they enjoy.
This is a huge number of hip arthroscopies for a single surgeon and has allowed for a significant contribution to the advancement of hip arthroscopy, perfection of the labral reconstruction technique, and more predictable excellent results for his patients. Dr. White is grateful for his team for sharing his commitment to this procedure and his patients.

Dr. White Proves Labral Reconstruction is Superior to Labral Repair

Monday, August 28, 2017

Dr. White’s paper comparing Labral Reconstruction to Labral Repair has been published in the Journal of Arthroscopy. In this study, 29 of his patients underwent hip arthroscopy on both sides. On one side, he performed a labral reconstruction, and on the other, he performed a labral repair. The results between the two sides were compared at a minimum of at least 2 years after the operations. This is a very powerful comparison, because instead of comparing 2 different people who had different procedures, this study looks at the same patient who can directly compare their 2 hips. The power of this study is that it eliminates all variables: It essentially directly compares his labral reconstruction to labral repair.

There were no failures in the reconstruction hips (0%). None. In contrast, 31% of the labral repairs failed. All of these patients decided to electively have a 3rd surgery to convert their failed labral repair to a reconstruction with Dr. White. Simply put, they wanted to get the result they had with their labral reconstruction. The results are clear and obvious: In his hands, labral reconstruction is a more reliable, better procedure for hip arthroscopy. He performs roughly 430 labral reconstructions per year. On August 2, 2017, he performed his 2,000th labral reconstruction. Dr. White is the right choice for your hip.

Dr White publishes a study on revision hip arthroscopy

Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Dr. White publishes his study showing that Labral Reconstruction is the only reasonable solution for patients who have failed a previous hip arthroscopy.

Hip arthroscopy has evolved significantly in the last decade. Unfortunately, during this time a very large number of patients had a hip arthroscopy that did not work. In some situations, these patients are now in more pain than they were before their original hip arthroscopy. Dr. White has been performing revision arthroscopic procedures since 2009 for this population of patients who are unfortunately in a very difficult position.

This study looks at 2 approaches to revision hip arhroscopy: one being to re-repair the labrum, which is what most surgeons offer, and the other to reconstruct the labrum with allograft. In this study of over 100 patients with minimum of 2 year follow-up, he showed a 4.1 times higher failure rate with re-repairing the labrum and excellent results in those who underwent labral reconstruction with allograft. He thoroughly believes and this paper validates that labral reconstruction is the only reasonable solution for patients who have failed a previous hip arthroscopy.

Dr. White publishes an article on missed labral tears after femur fractures

Wednesday, July 13, 2016

Dr White has treated several patients over the years for this complex problem. He believes that sometimes when a femur is broken, the hip can also sublux or subtly fall out of place and then go back into the joint. This can tear the labrum and this initial injury can cause a significant amount of pain and the diagnosis can be delayed. His hope is that this publication can help more patients get the care they need to get back to all that they enjoy.

While You Recover 

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

I have learned of a new company that may be helpful to my patients. Sarah Strong is a former patient of mine, who has had surgery on both of her hips.

With all she had done, her recovery was challenging on several levels. Through her experience, she developed a passion to apply what she learned from this and created While you Recover. This is a company which is designed to help with all of life’s extras to allow a patient to focus on themselves in the early phases of recovery. Her flexible services range from preparing your home for surgery, assistance with child care and even food preparation and shopping.

I am very excited about this for any of my patients that feel a bit overwhelmed by the recovery process or are traveling to Denver for their surgery and think they could use some help. Please feel free to contact Sarah or visit her website (www.whileyourecover.com) to learn more about the services that are available.

Respectfully,
Dr. Brian White

Dr. White's Hip Arthroscopy Database enrolls its 1500th Patient

Friday, June 6, 2014

During my fellowship in Vail, we had a visiting speaker who told us that if we had a procedure that we did a lot of, we owed it to our community and to ourselves to collect data on it. Since July of 2009, I have been maintaining a prospective database on my patients who had an arthroscopic procedure on their hip. This has allowed me to objectively evaluate my outcomes and make significant improvements with this procedure. Overall, it is a wealth of information that will enable us to publish articles that can share the knowledge that we have gained on a global level. I am grateful to all my patients who have contributed to this and also very thankful to everyone who has helped maintain this database along the way.
