Hip Arthroscopy

Hip arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that allows a surgeon to diagnose and treat certain hip disorders by providing a clear view of the inside of the hip, through a small incision.

The most common conditions that lend themselves to hip arthroscopy are removal of loose bodies, and the removal of torn or loose portions of the hip cartilage or labrum.

Patients who may benefit from hip arthroscopy are identified with a combination of clinical history, physical examination, X-rays and often a magnetic resonance (MRI) scan of the hip. Candidates for hip arthroscopy include active individuals who have painful hips, where there exists an opportunity to preserve the amount of cartilage they still have.  Hip arthroscopy may help postpone the need for hip replacement surgery – or eliminate it altogether.
