What is Hip Arthroscopy?

This is a surgical procedure through which the doctors are able to view the hip joints without making large incisions on the skin. Only a few incisions are required to insert arthroscope and other surgical instruments. Hence the pain and stiffness of joints caused by arthroscopic surgery is very minimal and the time taken for recovery is too less.

When is Hip Arthroscopy Recommended?

It is recommended when the hip pain is not reduced even after depending upon non-surgical treatments. The painful symptoms that could be a threat to the labrum and articular cartilage are all relieved through hip arthroscopy. Other medical conditions to be solved by Hip Arthroscopy are:

  • Hip joint infection
  • Synovitis- the tissues surrounding the joints get inflammation.
  • Dysplasia- The hip socket becomes very shallow and consequently, there will be more stress on the labrum that leads to wear and tear of it.
  • Loose Bodies- Bone and cartilage move within the joints.
  • Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)- The overgrowth of the bone around the femoral head and as a result damage of bone happens.
  • Snapping Hip Syndrome- Abundant rubbing of tendons across the joints that might lead to wear and tear.

How is the Surgery Done?

A general anesthesia is given to the patient. The leg is put in traction because it would help the surgeon to see the joint very keenly and to perform the treatment needed. He will then draw lines on the hip where the incisions for arthroscope have to be made. Small punctures on the hip are made so that the inside of the hip can be viewed by the surgeon to identify the damage. Once the problem is identified, the surgeon would put other surgical instruments to repair the issue. At the end of the surgery, a skin tape is used to cover all those incisions that have been made.

Of course, there would be pain post surgery. However, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs help you to be relieved from the pain and inflammation. Through Arthroscopy, many hip joint problems are solved by Dr. Thadi Mohan and he assures fast recovery from the issue as well.
