Labral tear hip surgery — what is the success rate? 1024 683 Phoenix Spine & Joint

A labral tear occurs when the cartilage that lines the rim of the hip socket, known as the labrum, becomes damaged. The labrum is prone to damage — most commonly due to age-related wear and sports-related injuries. In some cases, surgery will be recommended to treat a labral tear, but it is generally an elective procedure. This means that patients must weigh a number of factors, including cost, risk of complications and recovery time against the prospect for an improved quality of life.

Another important consideration to weigh when contemplating labral tear hip surgery is the success rate for this procedure. If there is a relatively high chance of a positive outcome, then it’s easier to consider the costs and risks that accompany a surgical procedure.

What factors determine the success rate of hip surgery?

The success rate of hip surgery (and orthopedic surgery in general) is often determined by a number of factors, such as:

  • Did the patient recover in the projected amount of time?
  • Did the patient experience a sustained reduction in pain and symptoms?
  • Was the overall experience of the procedure positive?
  • Was the overall experience with the surgeon and staff positive?
  • Have the symptoms not returned after surgery?
