Reasons For Arthroscopic Hip Surgery

If you and your doctor have exhausted all conservative measures for treating your hip pain, you may be a candidate for arthroscopic surgery. Arthroscopic hip surgery is considered when other conservative measures have not provided the required pain relief. It's a positive measure to regain your active lifestyle that hip pain is preventing.

Arthroscopic hip surgery may: 

  • Relieve pain
  • Improve joint stability
  • Remove loose bodies
  • Repair tears and damage
  • Delay the onset of osteoarthritis
  • Delay the need for a total hip replacement
  • Improve quality of life
  • Optimise activities of daily living
