Hip Arthroscopy

Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions affecting the hip joint. This procedure can be used to confirm the diagnosis of various imaging procedures, such as X-rays and MRIs, as it provides your doctor with a three-dimensional, real time imaging of the affected area, allowing for the most accurate diagnostic results. If damage or abnormalities are detected during the diagnostic procedure, repairs can often be made during the same procedure, offering patients many advantages over traditional surgery.

Arthroscopic techniques can often be used to treat conditions such as:

  • Labral tear
  • Loose bodies
  • Snagging hip syndrome
  • Cartilage damage
  • Arthritis

During the hip arthroscopy procedure, your surgeon will make a small incision near the affected area of the hip and insert an arthroscope, a long flexible tube with a camera on the end that displays images of the inside of the hip joint to detect any damage. If damage is detected, it can be repaired during the same procedure by inserting surgical instruments through a few other incisions. Your surgeon can replace damaged cartilage, join together torn ends, remove loose bodies or realign the joint to minimize pain and inflammation.
