Dr. Stephanie Pun is the Director of the Hip Preservation Program at Stanford Children's Health and specializes in the treatment of complex hip disorders with both open and arthroscopic surgical options for children and young adults. Her areas of expertise are adult hip dysplasia, infantile developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH), femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), acetabular labral tears, hip sports injuries, and childhood hip diseases such as SCFE and Perthes. After receiving her undergraduate degree from Stanford University and medical degree from UCSF School of Medicine, she then completed orthopaedic surgery residency at Stanford University and fellowship training in child & adult hip preservation surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School. Dr. Pun has served as faculty and presented her research findings at both national and international orthopaedic courses and research symposiums. She is an active member of AAOS, POSNA, ISHA, and is a site director for multi-center research studies through the Academic Network of Conservational Hip Outcomes Research (ANCHOR), International Hip Dysplasia Registry (IHDR) and Slipped Longitudinal International Prospective Registry (SCFE/SLIP).
Dr. Pun’s research interests include advancing knowledge of the dynamic pathoanatomy in hip instability and hip impingement, defining the unique anatomy of the dysplastic acetabulum, developing new surgical techniques for improving hip function, educating and advocating for hip dysplasia awareness, and clinical outcomes of hip preservation surgery.
