About these Clinics/Practices

Dr. Brian J. White’s practice is focused solely on the hip joint. By specializing on only one joint, this allows for greater precision with surgery and, in turn, superior outcomes. The main surgical procedures that I perform are hip arthroscopy and total hip replacements. Arthroscopic treatment of hip disorders has evolved dramatically and this less invasive procedure allows me to reshape the ball and the cup to treat femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). The torn labrum is removed. I then reconstruct the labrum or make a new labrum with a graft. The labral reconstruction provides a dramatic improvement in pain and function as the reconstructed labrum restores the normal biomechanics of the native labrum but should never be able to perceive pain. My goal with all patients is to preserve their hip joint. Dr. White performs on average 430 hip arthroscopies per year.
