The UK FASHIoN Trial

Full randomised controlled trial of arthroscopic surgery for hip impingement compared with best conservative care

“The study by Griffin and colleagues is the first to establish the efficacy of hip arthroscopy versus physical therapy in the medical literature.”

Karen K Briggs The Lancet

Professor Griffin led the largest ever randomised control trial of hip arthroscopy, and the first to demonstrate the benefits of the surgery for people with femoroacetabular impingement syndrome.

UK FASHIoN was published in The Lancet in June 2018, one of the leading medical journals in the world. You can download a copy of the article here.

A podcast of Professor Griffin talking to Karim Khan, the editor of the British Journal of Sports Medicine, about the study and what it means for people with hip pain, will be published here shortly.
