    Hi Icker, pls let me know how you get on.  There is a Facebook page for people with SUFE and I think they would be grateful to hear your story and how SUFE is being treated. SUFE/SCFE Slipped Upper Femoral (capital) Epiphysis is the group.  It is a closed group so just request to be added and we will ad you. Hope your arthroscopy goes well.
