Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used for evaluating and treating a variety of hip conditions, particularly hip problems in the young, active patient.

Traction is placed on your leg to create more space within your hip joint to allow the entry of surgical instruments. Two small incisions (<1cm) are made around your hip which allow the passage of a thin telescope/camera (arthroscope) to inspect your hip joint and passage of surgical instruments which are used to shave, trim, cut, smooth or repair the affected areas.
