Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)
Hip arthroscopic procedures may be used for a variety of hip conditions, primarily the treatment of labral tears, hip impingement, articular cartilage injuries, and the removal of loose bodies in the joint. Other less frequent conditions treated through hip arthroscopy include tendon or ligament injuries, deep gluteal space problems, piriformis, hip instability, and an inflamed or damaged synovium. Because all of these conditions may eventually lead to hip arthritis, treating them with arthroscopic procedures may be a beneficial option for patients.
Arthroscopic hip surgery is a positive measure to regain your active lifestyle that hip pain is preventing.
