HIP ARTHROSCOPY (KEYHOLE SURGERY)
The following problems can be treated by means of hip arthroscopy:
- Injuries to the hip joint labrum (tear of the labrum)
- Impingement of the hip
- Arthrophytes (corpus liberum)
- Cartilage flaps that become jammed during movement
- Arthritis of the hip joint
Of these, injuries to the labrum and the femoroacetabular impingement are the most common. During a hip arthroscopy, the excess bone is removed with a special device, a shaver. During the same arthroscopy, we also examine whether we can correct the labrum injury. In this way, it is possible to stop further wear and tear.
