Experienced Hip Arthroscopy Surgeon Practicing in Louisville, KY

A hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that may be considered to address hip pain that does not improve with conservative treatments, such as physical therapy and medication. By inserting a miniature camera and thin surgical instruments through a few tiny incisions around the hip, the surgeon can view the interior of the joint in detail and treat many issues without making a large incision or disrupting the surrounding tissues. As compared to traditional open hip surgery, a hip arthroscopy offers many potential advantages, including less risk and a faster recovery

If you would like to find meaningful relief from your disruptive hip pain and stiffness, you can confidently entrust your care to a specialist at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic. Our esteemed team includes Ryan Eads, MD, a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who specializes in minimally invasive sports medicine surgery. He is one of the few surgeons in the Louisville, Kentucky, area who has extensive experience in performing hip arthroscopy procedures for athletes of all levels.

What Can Be Accomplished With a Hip Arthroscopy?

Dr. Eads may suggest a hip arthroscopy to address discomfort or dysfunction caused by:

  • A loose piece of bone or cartilage floating in the joint space
  • A bone spur in the hip joint
  • A hip labral tear
  • Hip impingement (femoroacetabular impingement or FAI)
  • An inflamed or infected joint lining (synovitis)
  • A CAM lesion (excess bone on the head of the femur)

Because these conditions can contribute to the development of hip arthritis over time, treating them with a hip arthroscopy may delay or slow the progression of arthritis, and thereby postpone or eliminate the need for a hip replacement. Using advanced minimally invasive and muscle-sparing surgical techniques, Dr. Eads can achieve an optimal surgical outcome while minimizing any post-operative discomfort. Working alongside our physical therapists and other compassionate clinicians, he can facilitate your quick and safe return to the activities you enjoy.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

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!
