Orthopedic Surgery

Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure in which an arthroscope, which is a fiber optic instrument like a camera, is used to view joints inside the body.

During a hip arthroscopy an arthroscope is inserted into an incision near your hip joint to determine the extent of any damage to your hip. The advantage to performing a hip arthroscopy over an open surgery is that it is considered minimally invasive, which means that the small incisions create less trauma and result in shorter recovery times than open surgery.
