The hip is a ball and socket joint made up of the femoral head (ball), acetabulum (socket), and articular (joint) cartilage. A ring of cartilage, called the labrum, lines the inside of the socket and is responsible for many important functions of the hip. When there are problems with the ball, the socket, or any component of the cartilage or soft tissue that surrounds the hip, pain, weakness, and restricted mobility may occur.

These, and various other problems of the hip joint, can be treated with minimally invasive hip surgery.

Hip arthroscopy is indicated for:

  • Hip pain that doesn’t respond to non-surgical treatments
  • Damage to the surrounding soft tissues or tendons of the hip
  • Labral tears
  • Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)
  • Snapping hip syndrome
  • Iliotibial (IT) band syndrome
  • Synovitis
  • Loose bodies
  • Chondral (cartilage) injuries

Despite its many advantages, hip arthroscopy may not be indicated in some. Your doctor will be the right person to decide if you are a good candidate.
