Experienced Hip Arthroscopy Surgeon Practicing in New Albany, IN

Arthroscopic hip surgery (a “hip scope”) is performed less frequently than other minimally invasive joint procedures, such as arthroscopic knee surgery. This is mainly because the issues that can be treated with hip arthroscopy are comparatively less common.

For this reason and others, if you would like to explore your options for treating chronic hip pain, your best resource is an experienced hip arthroscopy surgeon. At Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic in New Albany, Indiana, you can work with Ryan Eads, MD, a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who is one of only a handful of surgeons in the area who have mastered this complex procedure. Dr. Eads can provide you with personalized advice to help you achieve the best possible outcome from your treatment.

What Conditions Can Be Treated by a Hip Arthroscopy Surgeon?

Dr. Eads may suggest a hip arthroscopy procedure to address severe hip pain or inflammation that has not responded to conservative treatments, such as physical therapy, medication, and injections. Some conditions that can be effectively treated with arthroscopic hip surgery include:

  • Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) syndrome
  • A hip labral tear
  • Snapping hip syndrome
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Loose cartilage or bone fragments floating in the hip joint
  • An infection in the hip joint

A Hip Arthroscopy Surgeon Who Takes a Personalized Approach

If arthroscopic hip surgery is appropriate for you and you decide to proceed, you can feel confident entrusting your care to Dr. Eads. By tailoring your surgery to your individual needs, he can help ensure that you will achieve the maximum benefits. For instance, as compared to traditional open hip surgery, the advantages of arthroscopic hip surgery can include:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less post-operative pain
  • A quicker recovery
  • Minimal scarring

Using a miniature fiber-optic camera and specialized surgical instruments, Dr. Eads can closely examine the interior of your hip joint and address any damage through tiny incisions. Depending on the type and extent of the damage, he may use any of several techniques, such as removing inflamed tissues, smoothing and repairing torn cartilage, and trimming bone spurs. Usually, the rehabilitation period that follows arthroscopic hip surgery involves a short period of rest, temporary use of crutches, and a progressive physical therapy program.

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. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
