What is Hip Arthroscopy?

Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure which allows an orthopedic surgeon to view the hip joint in order to avoid making a large incision through the skin and soft tissues. During the procedure, the surgeon uses a small camera, called an arthroscope, to guide tiny surgical instruments throughout the joint. As a result, the surgeon can diagnose and treat injuries to your hip in one short procedure.

What to Expect After Surgery

If you decide to undergo hip arthroscopy, your orthopedic surgeon will provide all necessary information on what to expect post-op. Most patients can expect a couple of hours in a recovery room before being discharged home. Because this procedure requires anesthesia, you will need to coordinate someone to drive you home after the procedure. A specific rehabilitation plan (if needed) will be provided to you.
