Current Research and Scholarly Interests
Dr. Pun specializes in the treatment of complex hip disorders with surgical hip preservation options for children, adolescents, and adults. Her goal is to enhance hip function in active individuals and to prevent the early development of hip osteoarthritis.
Her areas of expertise are acetabular dysplasia, developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH), femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), acetabular labral tears, hip cartilage defects, slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE), Perthes disease, and deformities of the pelvis and proximal femur.
She offers both arthroscopic and open hip preservation options, such as periacetabular osteotomy (PAO), pelvic and femoral osteotomies, surgical hip dislocations, and hip arthroscopy for repair of labral tears and chondral defects.
Dr. Pun received her undergraduate degree from Stanford University and medical degree from UCSF School of Medicine. She then completed the Stanford Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program, during which she developed a profound interest in hip function and preservation. She subsequently pursued fellowship training in Hip Preservation Surgery at the world-renowned Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
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, and clinical outcomes of hip preservation surgery.
