About the American Hip Institute
The American Hip Institute (AHI), founded in 2012, is a mission-driven organization dedicated to helping people get their lives back by preventing, diagnosing, and curing hip pain. Since then, AHI has become the first institution in the U.S. to specialize exclusively in advanced treatments of hip injuries, transforming the field of hip surgery worldwide through its unique research-based innovations and procedures. Headquartered in Chicago, AHI has expanded to sites across three states, with plans for further geographic expansion. It has also incorporated multiple verticals, including an orthopedic device incubator, three ambulatory surgery centers, and physical therapy. AHI has seen logarithmic growth in patients helped, while staying true to its missions of curing arthritis and advancing orthopedic surgery through innovation, research, and education. Importantly, the concept of the American Hip Institute represents a novel approach to healthcare, which is without precedent in the industry. In an age of mergers and consolidation in medicine, a highly specialized clinic with a laser focus on excellence in a narrow field represents a bold approach that puts the patient first.
