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