Arthroscopic Hip Surgery Performed by Dr. Ryan Eads in Louisville, KY

Dr. Ryan EadsHip pain is commonly associated with osteoarthritis, which causes painful inflammation as the joint’s shock-absorbing cartilage gradually breaks down and wears away. This type of degeneration occurs with ongoing use and is often age-related. Hip pain can also be a symptom of several other conditions, including bursitis and tendinitis, and injuries such as femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), labral tears, sprained ligaments, and fractures.

The Next Step After Conservative Treatment

In many cases, hip pain improves with physical therapy, medication, and/or injections. However, if you have tried non-surgical treatment without success, your next step may be arthroscopic hip surgery. When performing this minimally invasive procedure, the surgeon makes tiny incisions around the hip, then inserts a miniature camera to capture detailed, real-time images of the joint interior. As compared to traditional open surgery, hip arthroscopy can offer many advantages, including less pain, a faster recovery, and minimal scarring.

If you are interested in exploring arthroscopic hip surgery, you can consult with Ryan Eads, MD, at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic. A board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeon, Dr. Eads is recognized as one of only a handful of surgeons in the Louisville, Kentucky, area who have mastered this complex procedure.

The Importance of Specialty Care

Proficiency in arthroscopic hip surgery requires both an advanced skill set and extensive practice. In addition to being well-versed in minimally invasive surgical techniques, the surgeon must be adept at utilizing specialized instruments while viewing the surgical site on an external monitor. Because the skills required for arthroscopic hip surgery are very different from those needed for traditional open hip surgery, it is best to entrust this important procedure to an experienced specialist.

If you would like to work with a surgeon who has the expertise necessary to address your hip pain with arthroscopic hip surgery, turn to Dr. Eads in Louisville, KY. To request an appointment, contact Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic today.

Dr. Richardson is the best! He did shoulder decompression surgery for me many moons ago and has continued to treat me for other shoulder, arm, and back issues since. I would recommend him to anyone!
