Dennis Hamblin | Orthopedic Services
An avid hiker and skier, Dennis Hamblin had been dealing with lower back and groin pain since his sophomore year in high school. The pain was tolerable, though limiting, until two years ago when Dennis aggravated what he thought was a long-time groin injury while skiing. The pain intensified to the point where skiing was impossible and simple odd jobs around the house would leave his body aching. Dennis had had enough and saw a doctor who diagnosed him with femoral-acetabular impingement (FAI). Dennis was referred to Tri-City Medical Center’s Dr. Harish Hosalkar, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in hip preservation surgeries, who was able to relieve his debilitating pain and allow him to get back to the active lifestyle he loved.
