Bryan Kelly, M.D. from The Hospital for Special Surgery and New York Presbyterian’s Weill Cornell Medical College, spoke at UB Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine as the Ralph & Mary Wilson Visiting Professor on March 31, 2011.
Dr. Kelly currently serves as Co-Director for the Center for Hip Pain and Preservation, which is designed to provide multi-disciplinary care for patients at all levels with hip injuries. He has a broad range of both clinical and basic science research interests including the development of a clinical outcomes registry; biomechanical studies evaluating conflict patterns in femoroacetabular impingement and techniques in labral refixation; development of synthetic scaffolds for labral reconstruction and cartilage injuries in the hip; and the development of novel surgical techniques for managing soft tissue injuries around the hip joint. He is the principal author or collaborating author on over 70 published scientific articles and book chapters.
Dr. Kelly is a specialist in sports medicine injuries, and arthroscopic and open surgical management of non-arthritic disorders around the hip. He cares for several sports teams, serving as an Associate Team Physician for the New York Giants, the New York Red Bulls MLS team, and as the team consultant for hip injuries for the New Jersey Nets and several collegiate teams in the tri-state region. His training includes fellowships at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center with Dr. Marc J. Philippon. He is a recipient ofa2008 Award of Excellence in Orthopaedic Surgery Research (AAOS), and was awarded a 2002 NFL Charities Research Grant to support work on a Hydro-Gel Meniscal Transplant.
His current clinical areas of expertise include :
• Arthroscopic and open management of femoroacetabular impingement
• Management of hip chondral and labral injuries
• Hip instability / snapping hip syndromes
• Abductor repairs (gluteus medius / minimus)
• Proximal femoral reconstruction
• Proximal hamstring ruptures and proximal hamstring syndrome
• Other soft tissue injuries around the hip (hip flexor injuries, adductor injuries, lower abdominal injuries / sports hernias)
Dr. Kelly spent the day with the sports medicine staff and attending surgeons of UB Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, along with all of the fellows and residents of the department. He presented two didactic lectures that reviewed the anatomy and pathoanatomy of the hip and pelvis, and discussed the clinical history and physical findings in athletes with hip and pelvis conditions. The lectures were followed by case presentations to Dr. Kelly from our orthopaedic residents, followed by questions and answers pertaining to the subjects of the day.
The participants and Dr. Kelly carried out a scholarly exchange of ideas and expectations for the future, and proved very valuable in exposing our attending physicians, residents and fellows to the current state of the art in managing injuries of the athlete’s hip.
