HIP Arthroscopy

Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to diagnose and treat problems of the hip joint and surrounding soft tissues. Hip arthroscopy is same-day surgery and is generally performed under general anesthesia.  Hip arthroscopy usually takes between 1.5 to 2 hours, although the length of time can vary depending on the type of procedure being performed.

Hip arthroscopy may be effective in :

  • Relieving pain, 
  • Improving stability 
  • Removal of cartilage or bone spurs
  • Repair of damaged tissue 
  • Delaying OA changes 
  • Improve function and range of motion

Compared to open surgical procedures, these smaller incisions and tools cause less disruption to the hip joint and related soft tissues and result in:

  • Less pain and scarring
  • Fewer complications and less risk of infection
  • Shorter recovery time
