During the Vail Hip Symposium in Vail, Colorado, Dr. LaPrade discussed some of the hip research that he and Dr. Marc Philippon have done together and the positive impact bioengineering hip research can have on a practice. The way we look at research is similar to a pyramid. At the base, there is knowledge of quantitative anatomy. In the middle, there is biomechanics and at the top there is clinical outcomes.
