Hip Conditions Treated with Hip Arthroscopy
The arthroscope and surgical instruments are thin, therefore the surgeon can use small incisions, rather than the larger incision needed for open surgery. This results in less pain for patients, less joint stiffness, and often lessens the time it takes to recover and return to favorite activities.
Other hip conditions treated with hip arthroscopy include:
- Labral tears
- Tendon injury
- Ligament injury
- Hip instability
- Inflamed or damaged synovium
All of these conditions can eventually lead to arthritic hips, therefore treating them with arthroscopic procedures is a recommended preventive option for your future health and comfort.
