With the constant movement and strain placed on the hips through daily activity, tears and other painful conditions are not just limited to athletes. Labral tears, impingements and loose bodies within the hip cause significant discomfort and greatly limit activity. Often, patients can be treated through soft tissue services. When surgery proves the appropriate course, however, these conditions can now be alleviated through minimally invasive hip arthroscopy. Patients often return home the same or next day after procedures that once required lengthy hospital stays using traditional methods.
