Hip Labral Tear. A hip labral tear occurs in a similar ring of cartilage spanning the outside rim of the hip joint socket. Labral tears of the hip can cause pain or stiffness in the hip or groin as well as a clicking, locking, or “catching” sensation in the hip joint.
Our surgeons use hip arthroscopy to diagnose and repair labral tears. This minimally-invasive surgical technique results in less pain and swelling and faster healing than open surgery. Our state-of-the-art orthopedic surgical center has been home to thousands of labral tear repairs performed on patients from all over the world.
