Hip arthroscopy is a minimally-invasive surgical technique used to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions affecting the hip joint that don’t respond to more conservative approaches. During hip arthroscopy, a few small incisions are made to accommodate a long, slender camera (arthroscope) and special instruments. A viewscreen allows the surgeon to “see” inside the joint and perform the procedure. The smaller incisions result in less pain and swelling and a faster recovery for the patient as compared with open surgical techniques.
Our surgeons are skilled in a number of hip arthroscopy procedures including:
- Removal of bone spurs
- Dysplasia correction
- Tendon repair
- Removal of inflamed tissue from synovitis
- Removal of bone fragments or loose cartilage
- Treatment of infections of the hip joint
Because our facility specializes in orthopedic procedures, your hip arthroscopy will be done using state-of-the-art technologies in an operating room that has been optimized for these types of surgeries. Hip arthroscopy is not as common as knee or shoulder arthroscopy, so it is important to choose an orthopedic surgeon who has experience with the procedure. Our orthopedic surgeons have performed hundreds of hip arthroscopies at our Arizona surgical centers. Give us a call today.
