Dr. Sampson is an Orthopaedic Surgeon who developed the “Lateral Approach” to hip arthroscopy in 1984.

In addition, Dr. Sampson specializes in revision hip arthroscopy and can easily determine whether a patient is a candidate. Revision hip arthroscopy is when a patient has had a previous hip arthroscopy yet still experiences pain or has continued restrictive motion.

Dr. Sampson welcomes patients to contact him to discuss their specific hip injury and whether hip arthroscopy can help them.
