Hip joint arthroscopy is a surgical treatment abroad that allows doctors to view the hip joint without making a large incision (cut) through the skin and other soft tissues. Arthroscopy is used to diagnose and treat a wide range of hip joint problems. During hip joint arthroscopy, your specialised orthopaedic surgeon inserts a small camera, called an arthroscope, into your hip joint. Hip joint arthroscopy abroad has been performed for many years, but is not as common as knee or shoulder arthroscopy.
Once the problem is clearly identified, your specialised orthopaedic surgeon will insert other small instruments through separate incisions to repair it. A range of treatments can be done, depending on your needs. For example, your specialised orthopaedic surgeon can:
• Smooth off torn cartilage or repair it
• Trim bone spurs caused by FAI
• Remove inflamed synovial tissue

At the end of surgery, the arthroscopy incisions are usually stitched or covered with skin tapes. An absorbent dressing is applied to the hip.
