Our research

The key objectives of our research projects are to improve outcomes for young athletes and patients with hip conditions, add research value and reduce research waste on conditions affecting the young person’s hip (currently focussing on primary cam morphology and its natural history). One of the YAHiR Collaboration projects include a number of studies and knowledge dissemination strategies aiming to ‘enlighten’ a more rigorous and evidence-based approach to research on primary cam morphology.
