The hip joint serves as a crucial nexus between your thigh bone (femur) and hip bone (pelvis), standing as one of the largest joints in your body, secondary only to the knee. It plays a pivotal role in connecting your torso (axial skeleton) to your lower legs, thereby acting as a linchpin for numerous bodily movements and functions.

Arthroscopic Treatment for

Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI) - Cam Excision

Femoroacetabular impingement is a condition where the bones of the hip are abnormally shaped, causing them to rub against each other and result in damage to the joint. A cam impingement is a specific type of FAI where the femoral head is misshapen. Cam excision is an arthroscopic procedure aimed at reshaping the femoral head to prevent it from rubbing against the acetabulum. This minimally invasive procedure allows for precise excision of the bone, alleviating impingement and associated pain.

Labral Tears - Labral Repair

The labrum is a type of cartilage found in the hip joint that acts as a cushion and helps hold the femoral head within the acetabulum. A tear in the labrum can cause pain and instability in the hip joint. Labral repair is an arthroscopic procedure that aims to repair the torn labrum and restore its normal function. Surgeons use arthroscopic techniques to access the hip joint, identify the extent of the tear, and suture the torn areas back together.

Synovial Disorders - Synovectomy

Synovial disorders in the hip joint can cause inflammation and pain. These disorders may be due to conditions like synovial chondromatosis or inflammatory arthritis. A synovectomy is an arthroscopic procedure that involves the removal of the inflamed synovial tissue from the joint to alleviate symptoms. The minimally invasive nature of arthroscopic synovectomy allows for a quicker recovery and less post-operative pain compared to traditional open surgery.
