Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed through 2 or 3 small 5-10mm incisions (ie. key hole surgery) using an advanced HD camera and special instruments to visualise and work inside and around the hip joint. A specially designed hip traction table is used to allow access into the hip joint.
Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive approach resulting in less tissue damage, less pain, less blood loss, and faster recovery and return of function. Patients are allowed to immediately weight-bear and walk, and can go off crutches as soon as they are able. Hip arthroscopy can be performed as a “day-case” (ie. going home the same day) but patients typically choose to go home the following day.
Hip arthroscopy is indicated when conservative measures fail to relieve symptoms related to femoroacetabular impingement, a condition that has been poorly understood and under-treated in the past. Advances have made hip arthroscopy a safe and effective alternative to open surgery of the hip, a tremendous advantage in treating early hip conditions that ultimately can advance to end-stage arthritis. Hospital for Special Surgery hip surgeons have the special training and high volume of experience to perform hip arthroscopy skillfully and with documented successful outcome.
