Hip Arthroscopy

Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive operation that allows thorough visualization of the hip joint to diagnose and treat various disorders inside and outside the hip joint. So far there is no radiographic study that is entirely sensitive or specific for the diagnosis of cartilage lesions such as labial tears or chondral damage. Hip arthroscopy is a technically demanding procedure, requiring in depth knowledge; therefore, this operation should not be performed without specific training and education in its methods.

Arthroscopy began as a simple diagnostic tool for planning open surgery but with the development of better instrumentation and surgerical techniques many conditions can now be treated arthroscopically.
