Risks and Complications

Hip Arthroscopy has become a common surgery with favorable patient outcomes. Despite the many benefits of hip arthroscopy, there are risks and associated with surgery.

General risks of surgery include:

  • Pain
  • Blood clots in the legs (deep vein thrombosis)
  • Infection
  • Nausea, breathing problems, sore throat (as a result of anesthesia)
  • Confusion/delirium

Risks and complications of arthroscopic surgery include:

  • Injury to soft tissues
  • Damage to nerves or blood vessels
  • Injury to the cartilage and labrum
  • Fracture
  • Hip stiffness

Before the procedure your doctor will brief you on the potential complications of the surgery. However, with the minimally invasive approach of arthroscopic hip surgery and your surgeon’s skill, the risk of complication is greatly reduced. Surgery is only advised if the therapeutic benefits outweigh possible complications.
