The Approach to Hip Arthroscopy

Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows the physician to view the structures of the hip joint.  Hip arthroscopy may be recommended if a patient has a painful condition that has not responded to non-operative treatment (i.e., injections, physical therapy, etc.).

Arthroscopic hip procedures include, but are not limited to, the following.

  • Repair or reconstruct torn labrum
  • Remove or repair torn cartilage
  • Trim bone spurs
  • Removal of inflamed synovial tissue
  • Femoroacetabular impingement
  • Labral tears
  • Removal of loose bodies
  • Iliopsoas tendinitis
  • Trochanteric bursitis
  • Adhesive capsulitis
  • Joint sepsis
  • Osteonecrosis
  • Periacetabular Osteotomy for hip dysplasia

Hip arthroscopy allows for less tissue damage, less post-operative pain, and a faster recovery when compared to a more complex, open procedure.
