Scottish Rite Hospital Hosts 2018 ANCHOR Hip Meeting

At Scottish Rite Hospital, research is at the forefront of our mission to provide the best care to our patients now and into the future. Our doctors and researchers collaborate with institutions from across the globe to discuss the latest innovations and treatment techniques. 

Today, the hospital is honored to host the Academic Network of Conservational Hip Outcomes Research (ANCHOR) study group. With members from different hospitals around the country, ANCHOR is dedicated to advancing the treatment of adolescent patients diagnosed with various hip conditions. The study analyzes hip function and pain, quality of life and other factors on patients who undergo hip preservation surgeries. Each year, the meeting allows members to review data and collaborate on current and future projects.  

Chief of Staff Daniel J. Sucato, M.D., M.S., and pediatric orthopedic surgeons David A. Podeszwa, M.D. and Henry B. Ellis, M.D., represent the hospital in the ANCHOR study group. “We are excited to have the opportunity to host the meeting and be a part of this specialized project,” says Sucato. “Although as a group we only meet annually, we are dedicated to the research for this patient population all year round. As an institution, it is an honor to work with medical professionals from around the country in order to provide leading-edge care to our hip patients.”
