Arthroscopic surgery of the hip is a non-invasive procedure usually performed as outpatient surgery. The orthopedic surgeon makes tiny incisions in the hip joint, then places a microscopic camera inside the joint to view the damaged structure.
The surgeon will use several specially designed instruments to repair damaged tissue, reshape abnormal bones, remove bone spurs and repair torn cartilage. Arthroscopic surgery is very effective in treating a variety of hip ailments, including arthritis, bursitis, labral tears, and gluteus medius repairs.
There are several arthroscopic procedures available for hip-related injuries and ailments. Call (888) 503-ORTHO or Contact Us to learn more. We also offer referrals to orthopedic specialists at the Chicago Center for Orthopedics.
