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.
