Abstract

Hip arthroscopy is a procedure that is gaining popularity for treating hip pain related to intraarticular cartilage lesions or loose bodies. It offers an alternative procedure that can decrease or eliminate hip pain and increase a patient's ability to do activities of daily living. This article provides a comprehensive overview of hip arthroscopy and also addresses the anatomy of the hip, appropriate diagnoses for the procedure, operative considerations and postoperative teaching.
