Minimally Invasive Hip Surgery Performed by a Specialist in Louisville, KY

X-ray of hips and pelvis

Hip pain is common and often improves with conservative treatment, such as physical therapy or injections. If yours has not, you might consider a surgical procedure, such as a hip arthroscopy, as your next step. Also known as a hip scope, this minimally invasive hip surgery may be performed to address a painful condition such as a hip labral tear, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), or hip dysplasia. While operating through tiny incisions, the surgeon uses a miniature camera to view the interior of the hip joint.

If you are interested in minimally invasive hip surgery, you are encouraged to consult with Ryan Eads, MD, a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who practices at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic. Dr. Eads holds the distinction of begin one of only a few surgeons in the Louisville, Kentucky, area who perform hip arthroscopy procedures.

Why It Is Important to See a Specialist

A surgeon who performs minimally invasive hip surgery must have a very specific and advanced skill set. In addition to having mastered general hip surgery techniques, the surgeon must be well-versed in using a camera and monitor to navigate the surgical site and deploy the surgical instruments. These specialized techniques cannot be “translated” from traditional open surgery; instead, the requisite skills must be learned, practiced, and perfected on their own.

In addition to focused training and highly refined skills, extensive experience is necessary to gain proficiency in minimally invasive hip surgery. Some surgeons who perform traditional open hip surgery are not trained or experienced in utilizing arthroscopic techniques, while others may offer hip arthroscopy only on a limited basis. Therefore, the best way to ensure an optimal outcome is to entrust your care to a surgeon who has the expertise necessary to treat your specific condition using the most advanced minimally invasive techniques available. In Louisville, KY, that surgeon is Dr. Eads.

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!
