ARTHROSCOPIC HIP SURGERY

Hip arthroscopy

Description

During arthroscopy of the hip, the surgeon uses a tiny camera called an arthroscope to see inside your hip.

  • An arthroscope is made up of a tiny tube, a lens, and a light source. A small surgical cut is made to insert it into your body.
  • The surgeon will look inside your hip joint for damage or disease.
  • Other medical instruments may also be inserted through one or two other small surgical cuts. This allows the surgeon to treat or fix certain problems, if needed.
  • Your surgeon may remove extra pieces of bone that are loose in your hip joint, or fix cartilage or other tissues that are damaged.

Spinal or epidural or general anesthesia will be used in most cases, so you will not feel pain. You may also be asleep or receive medicine to help you relax.
