Welcome to ISHA

ISHA – The Hip Preservation Society has been the creation of many individuals from across the globe, each united by a common interest in the expanding arena of hip preservation.

As a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), ISHA is committed to improving outcomes for patients with hip injury and disease through improved training and education of healthcare professionals, better patient education and early intervention through earlier screening and detection allowing effective hip preservation treatment, which will enable patients to live with “healthy hips” for longer and ensure hip replacement is a requirement only in old age.

ISHA’s vision is to be the premier international society for education and research in hip preservation, and we are always seeking like-minded individuals to join us, subject to our membership criteria.

Patient Information

ISHA has the long-term aim of being the premier source of patient information in the field of hip preservation. To this end, the Society has a committee dedicated to compiling patient resources that help to explain a range of conditions relating to the hip, for use by patients or by healthcare professionals with their patients. These materials are free of charge to access, and are constantly being developed, expanded and enhanced.

In addition, patients can use the “Find a Surgeon” and “Find a Physiotherapist” functions to find a nearby practitioner specialising in treatment of the hip.
