Using hip arthroscopy, our surgeons can view the hip joint using a small camera, called an arthroscope, which is inserted during the procedure using very small incisions. This procedure eliminates the need for invasive open surgery, and instead uses a video monitor to guide small surgical instruments throughout the hip. The results include less pain for the patient, less joint stiffness, and often shorter recovery periods before retuning to work or play. We may recommend arthroscopy if a patient has a complicated condition that doesn’t respond to treatment of a nonsurgical nature.
