While a fellow at the University of Virginia, he functioned as a team physician taking care of the Division I athletes at the University of Virginia and James Madison University. He completed his training with a 6 month hip arthroscopy fellowship in Melbourne, Australia with John O'Donnell, a pioneer in hip arthroscopy and one of the highest volume hip arthroscopists in the world. Dr. Economopoulos is one of few orthopaedic surgeons in the United States to complete a concentrated fellowship in hip arthroscopy and the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and labral tears. Dr. Economopoulos' clinical interests include sports injuries and arthroscopic treatment of knee, hip and shoulder injuries. He has special interest in the treatment of hip injuries in the young athlete and specializes in the arthroscopic treatment of FAI and labral tears of the hip and open repairs of hamstring tears.
