The main problem with the labral tissue is that it does not have the capability to repair through natural mechanisms. Many of the body’s other tissues will repair without the need for surgery. For a hip labral tear, you will likely require surgical intervention, as the tissue does not typically heal well on its own.
At Silicon Valley Orthopaedics, we offer minimally invasive options for hip labral tear repair. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds will initially recommend nonsurgical options for hip pain, depending on the severity of the tear. Treatments include rest, NSAIDS, physical therapy and a series of injections placed directly into the hip joint.
Surgery is usually required in cases involving a complicated labral tear, where more conservative measures will not provide pain relief or improve mobility. Arthroscopic surgeries are performed using small incisions and specialized tools to repair the labral tissue without leaving a large scar.
