Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts is still considering his options after receiving a second opinion on his injured hip earlier this week, a club source said. Roberts was disagnosed with a right labral hip tear after returning to Baltimore from the west coast for an MRA. Roberts visited a hip specialist in Atlanta to seek a second opinion. Roberts is deciding whether he will opt for surgery, which would take at least two months of recovery time, or try to rehab the injury on his own. The 34-year-old Roberts made an emotional return from a 13-month absence from multiple concussions last month, but his return lasted just 17 games.

When saying goodbye, weeping can come with the territory. In its own way, the party-starting Baltimore rap duo AK Slaughter knows this painfully well. At a recent cover shoot for their forthcoming and final EP, “It's Not You ... It's Us,” Emily Slaughter and Aran Keating hoped to depict the aftermath of a break-up. They wanted to truly cry for the full effect, but an onion they sliced failed to produce tears. So the two friends improvised. “So then Aran takes the onion juice and puts it against his eyeball,” Slaughter, who described the shoot as “exhausting,” said outside of the Bell Foundry performance space in Station North last week.

Hip dysplasia may not be obvious in newborns, but the disorder may already be affecting babies' development. And the sooner parents and caregivers get an evaluation and treatment, the easier the fix, according to Dr. Andrew Abramowitz, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center who trained in pediatric orthopedics. What is pediatric hip dysplasia and how common is it? Hip dysplasia (developmental dysplasia of the hip or DDH) is a spectrum of abnormalities of the ball and socket joint of the hip. It occurs in one in every 1,000 live births.

In my family it is known as "The Jongebloed Hip," which - amazingly - is even less glamorous than its title. It is the genetic misstep that caused my grandfather and his twin brother to spend their last 30 years veering slightly left of center and wincing on their way up from or down to any chair in a room. When my mother could no longer deny that she was in grave pain with every step, her doctor gasped at her X-rays and sent her posthaste for a replacement. "Don't worry," my mother always told me. "You have Dad's genes, and his hip is fine.

FIFTY YEARS after Elvis Presley's gyrating pelvis scandalized his elders across the nation, the Texas legislature has devised a fitting tribute: a ban on "overly sexually suggestive" moves by high school cheerleaders aimed primarily at booty-shakers. One-two-three-four. Don't-these-guys-know-the-score? A directive from the state capital is probably the least effective way to change teen behavior. Complaints about Elvis' hips only added to his appeal. Five-six-seven-eight. There's-no-cause-to-legislate.

Even a sore left hip won't prevent Steele Stanwick from making his customary start in Saturday's showdown between No. 1 Virginia and No. 2 Johns Hopkins. The senior attackman has been bothered by a hip injury that was most noticeable during the Cavaliers' 9-8 overtime win against Cornell at the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic on March 10. The pain flares up occasionally as it did during practice Monday when he doubled over after scoring a goal. But Stanwick said the injury is not serious.

While the name John Gilbert Collison Sr. has been largely forgotten today, his invention of the artificial steel hip ball more than 60 years ago has given him orthopedic immortality. His invention, manufactured in Baltimore in his Falls Road facility, has saved lives and given relief and hope to patients worldwide who suffered from fractured hips or severe arthritis. At a time when a fractured hip was almost a certain death sentence, his revolutionary invention gave people hope and the ability that they would regain and live normal, pain-free lives.

There was a time when some popular hip-hop artists rhymed about settling scores with a Glock. But now that the music has gone mainstream, LL Cool J, the man behind the 1990 hit single "Mama Said Knock You Out," and Doug E. Fresh, who is otherwise known as the human beat box, are hard at work at a different kind of rhyming. They are writing children's books. "My goal is to become the modern-day Dr. Seuss," Doug E. Fresh said. The books, published by Scholastic and scheduled to be released next month, are morality tales and stories about developing personal strength.

What stopped the murder rampage in California was a bullet to the brain ( "UC Santa Barbara begins 'day of mourning' for shooting victims," May 27). It was self-delivered by the murderer, but that should not be a controversy among the living. Knife, car and gun combined to visit misery to the community. If only someone had been able to deliver that bullet to the brain faster. That would have required a "good guy" with a gun on his hip. We as a society give police officers guns that we fully expect will never be used during an arrest (especially our own)

MINNEAPOLIS - Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is pleased with the progress he has made since going on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique muscle, and he said Sunday that he believes he's slightly ahead of schedule in his recovery. “It's something that I've never dealt with, something I've never gone through before, so I don't have anything to compare it to,” Davis said Sunday before the Orioles' 5-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins at Target Field. “I've been pretty happy with the way I've been feeling lately.

The early candidate for rap album of the year begins with a mother warning her son to stop following in the footsteps of his incarcerated father. The colorfully delivered advice was given to Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, the 24-year-old rapper better known as YG who performs Wednesday at Baltimore Soundstage. Although YG did not adhere to the counsel (he spent six months in jail for residential burglary before he signed to Def Jam in 2009), the Compton, Calif., MC proved he was on his own path with the release of “My Krazy Life,” an acclaimed first album that debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 in March.

Each time the ambulance hit a pothole, Dennis Pitta experienced a new level of agony. There were so many things on his mind. Was his season over? Was his career in jeopardy? How was his wife? Serious reflection, though, would have to wait. The pain was just too consuming. Pitta lay in the back of the ambulance in the fetal position, unable to straighten his legs. His body swayed as the ambulance weaved through traffic. Each bump on the way to Columbia's MedStar Union Memorial Hospital - Liberty Road was the worst - felt like another dagger being plunged into his side.

For some people, simply jogging or playing a friendly game of tennis comes with reminders of the passage of time: creaking knees and aching hips. Although these symptoms often can be treated with rest, therapy and medication, nearly 500,000 Americans each year receive knee replacements, says Dr. Brian Mulliken, a joint replacement specialist at St. Joseph Medical Center/Orthopaedic Associates. Another 300,000 people receive hip replacements. And, as the population ages, that number grows annually.

Before reports surfaced last week that he flunked a drug test, the biggest medical concern facing Tour de France champion Floyd Landis was joint replacement surgery for his much-publicized bum hip. And in that problem, at least, the cyclist has plenty of company. Fueled in part by fitness-crazed baby boomers and aging jocks who refuse to be sidelined by throbbing knees and other worn-out parts, experts expect a boom in joint replacement surgeries in the coming years. By 2030, the number of knee replacements in the United States is expected to jump 673 percent to 3.48 million, according to a study presented at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons' annual meeting in March.

For the first 13 weeks of the season, Pitta had been helpless to watch the highs and lows while he was sidelined with a fractured and dislocated hip. At times, he wasn't sure if and when he would be back to help this teammates for their playoff push. But there Pitta was late Sunday afternoon, taking stock of his emotions moments after a thrilling 29-26 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in which he delivered for a Ravens team that had desperately been missing his route-running and reliable hands in critical situations.

Dennis Pitta saw a hip specialist Tuesday in New York, and Ravens coach John Harbaugh remains hopeful that the tight end will make his 2013 regular-season debut Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings at M&T Bank Stadium. Pitta, who dislocated and fractured his right hip on the first full-padded practice of training camp, practiced again Wednesday. It's expected that he will ramp up his activity throughout the week to put him in line to face the Vikings, barring any setbacks. “It's going to be a matter of how ready he is to play and healthy he is to play,” Harbaugh said.
