Arthroscopic surgery of the hip joint is a surgical procedure that has been successfully performed over the last few decades. Recent advances in medical technology and surgical instrumentation have led to a renewed interest in this minimally invasive procedure and expansion of the conditions that it effectively used to treat. However, not many physicians have the depth of experience and specialized training required to do hip arthroscopy. At Proliance Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, we have one of the premier surgeons in the area that is specialized in the use of this procedure.

While hip arthroscopy cannot treat all hip disorders, it is highly effective in treating the following conditions and may even delay or eliminate the need for a total hip replacement in the future.

• Labral tears
• Removal of loose bodies in the joint
• Synovitis
• Degenerative Osteoarthritis
• Femoral Acetabular Impingement
