Hip arthroscopy is a technique used by orthopedic surgeons to diagnose and treat a range of problems in the hip joint. During the minimally invasive procedure, your surgeon will make a very small incision and insert a tiny camera — called an arthroscope — into your hip. Hip arthroscopy can also repair injured ligaments within your joint. The camera displays pictures on a video monitor, and your surgeon uses these detailed images to locate and repair the problem on the spot using miniature surgical instruments.
Because these incisions are typically small compared with larger incisions needed in traditional hip surgeries, hip arthroscopy typically results in less pain and joint stiffness for patients, and often shortens the time it takes to recover and return normal activity.
