  • Hip Arthroscopy

  • Hip arthroscopy is a surgery that is done by making small cuts around the hip and using a tiny camera (arthroscope) to look inside.


  • The arthroscope can be used to diagnose and treat a variety of hip problems and conditions.

    A hip arthroscopy is typically done to:

    • Remove small pieces of bone or cartilage that may be floating around inside your hip joint causing pain
    • Repair a torn labrum (a tear in the cartilage that is attached to the rim of your hip socket bone)
    • Resolve symptoms of hip impingement syndrome
    • Investigate hip pain that does not go away

     

    A full recovery will depend on what type of problem the surgery was needed for. In some cases, a hip arthroscopy is necessary to treat arthritis in the knee.
