Total Hip Replacement

A total hip replacement is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased cartilage and bone of the┬áhip joint is surgically replaced with artificial materials. The normal hip joint is a ball and socket joint. The socket is a “cup-shaped” component of the pelvis called the acetabulum.

Hip Arthroscopy

Hip Arthroscopy is one of the more common procedures for hip conditions. This procedure uses one or more small incisions and small endoscopic cameras to allow surgeons to view damage to the hip joints, bones or cartilage in high definition. Once the camera has been inserted, the surgeon uses microsurgical tools to remove damaged tissue or debris that is causing hip pain.

To begin this procedure, the surgeon will make one or more small incision around the damaged area where the pencil sized cameras and surgical instruments will be inserted. Next, a clear sterile fluid is injected that allows the surgeon to visualize the area in greater detail.

Once the surgeon has visualized and evaluated the area, the surgeon may decide tissue or ligaments need to be trimmed or partially removed. Small surgical instruments are inserted to remove the painful tissue or ligaments. The incisions are closed with small stitch or sterile strips.

Hip Labrum Repair

Hip Labral Repair is an effective arthroscopic surgical treatment for those experiencing chronic pain in the hip as a result of a torn labrum of the hip. This procedure uses one or more small incisions and small endoscopic cameras to allow surgeons to view damage to the hip joints in high definition. Once the camera has been inserted, the surgeon uses microsurgical tools to remove damaged tissue or debris that is causing hip pain.

To begin this procedure, the surgeon will make one or more small incision around the labrum where the pencil sized cameras and surgical instruments will be inserted. Next, a clear sterile fluid is injected that allows the surgeon to visualize the area in greater detail.

Once the surgeon has visualized and evaluated the area, the surgeon may decide the tissue surrounding the labrum may need to be trimmed or partially removed. Small surgical instruments are inserted to remove the painful tissue allowing the hip joints to slide back into their normal position along the labrum. The incisions are closed with small stitch or sterile strips.
