What Does a Hip Arthroscopy Involve?
A hip arthroscopy is a commonly performed procedure that utilizes an arthroscope—a long, thin surgical instrument with a tiny camera attached to the end. This arthroscope is inserted into the hip through a small incision, which allows the surgeon to view detailed images of the joint without having to make large incisions or unnecessarily disrupt healthy tissues.
A hip arthroscopy may be performed to help a physician make a diagnosis by providing visuals of the hip joint, or an arthroscope and other special surgical instruments can be used to address hip pain or stiffness caused by:
- Loose pieces of bone or cartilage
- Bone spurs
- Labral tears
- Hip impingement (femoroacetabular impingement)
- Inflamed or infected joint linings
