Hip Arthroscopy

Overview of Hip Arthroscopy

Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive form of hip surgery that requires only 2-3 small incisions and utilizes an arthroscopic camera that helps the surgeon see inside of the hip joint. Until relatively recently, it was considered too technically difficult to perform and was rarely used. However, recent advantages in surgical technique and technology have expanded the use of hip arthroscopy. Doctors also have a better understanding of hip problems and newer research has shown that early treatment of some conditions with hip arthroscopy may help prevent worsening of these problems or development of new problems.

What Can Be Treated with Hip Arthroscopy

Arthroscopic hip surgery can be used to treat many conditions.
