Hip Arthroscopy (Keyhole Surgery)

By 15 July 2012February 20th, 2024No Comments

Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive keyhole surgical procedure that allows one to place the camera into the hip joint.

This procedure is a relatively new surgical procedure and a very good way of assessing and treating hip pain in younger patients. It is usually indicated for patients who have not developed any features of arthritis of the hip, but have regular hip pain or groin pain.

The problems that may be encountered in the hip joint would be loose bodies, a torn labrum or delamination of the articular surface. This could be due to Femoral-Acetabular impingement (FAI). A thorough pre-operative evaluation, usually with X-rays as well as an MRI scan, will be required to determine whether a patient is a suitable candidate for a hip arthroscopy.
