Hip Arthroscopic Surgery

Hip surgery is often associated with open procedures that involve partial or complete replacement of the joint. However, there are also minimally-invasive surgeries that can be performed through hip arthroscopy. This involves the use of one or two small incisions that allow access to a specific area of the hip or surrounding tissues.

Experienced orthopedic surgeons, Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds, provide conservative treatment options for a range of hip-related conditions at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics. These affordable procedures result in less trauma to the structures and tissues of the hip joint. This leads to reduced recovery time for the patient.

A small light and digital camera, known as an arthroscope, is used to enter the treatment area through a small incision. Your orthopedic surgeon is then able to view clear images on a monitor, allowing them to perform intricate surgical procedures with precision. If your hip arthroscopic surgery is carried out as an outpatient procedure, you should be able to return home on the same day.

Hip Conditions Treated with Arthroscopic Surgery

Hip arthroscopic surgery does not necessarily involve treatment. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds may use the procedure to examine or monitor damage to the joint or surrounding tissues. Conditions that benefit from hip arthroscopy may include:

  • Bone spurs
  • Bursitis
  • Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)
  • Iliotibial (IT) band syndrome
  • Labral tears
  • Loose bodies in the hip
  • Snapping hip syndrome
  • Tendon tears

All hip treatment recommendations at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics are based on the results of a clinical examination. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds can use hip arthroscopic surgery to aid in the diagnostic process. If you would like to know whether hip arthroscopic surgery would benefit you, book an appointment for a consultation at our California practice today.
