Arthroscopic Hip Surgery — An Option for Patients in Freehold, NJ
Arthroscopic hip surgery is a minimally invasive technique that uses a fiber optic camera, small surgical instruments, and portal incisions to treat painful hip conditions. Years ago, the only option for treating many of these conditions was a traditional surgical repair performed through a large, open incision. In comparison, a “hip scope” offers many advantages, such as the potential for a quicker recovery, less scarring, and a faster return to pre-injury activity levels. If you would like to explore minimally invasive hip surgery, you are encouraged to talk with a board-certified orthopedic surgeon at New Jersey Sports Medicine in Freehold, NJ.
Arthroscopy is particularly well-suited for athletes and other active individuals under the age of 55 who are interested in proactively addressing a damaged hip joint before they experience chronic pain or lose significant mobility. For instance, arthroscopic hip surgery can address:
- Hip pain associated with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)
- Labral tears
- Snapping hip syndrome
- General hip pain in pre-arthritic patients
