The ball-and-socket joint in the hips allows you to move, sit, stand, and exercise easily, but these tasks are often much more difficult if you feel pain in this area. Hip impingement, also known as femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), occurs when the ball and socket of the hip do not fit together properly. This could result from an extra bone or a deformity in the area, which could wear away at the joint over time. If you experience pain in the hip or groin area, you should immediately see a professional to treat the issue and prevent it from worsening.

We typically try these methods first before performing any procedures. Our trusted team leaves no stone unturned and considers every potential option before deciding if you need surgery.
Unfortunately, some patients need hip impingement surgery if the non-surgical options do not fix the issue. The type of procedure required depends on the cause and the amount of cartilage damage. Typically, we treat hip impingement with arthroscopy. This minimally-invasive procedure allows us to look at the hip joint without making large incisions. Hip arthroscopy usually involves the following steps:
If you need this procedure, we will administer anesthesia so that you remain comfortable. We understand this can be a daunting process, so we do everything we can to make you feel comfortable and understand your options.
Hip arthroscopy is a same-day surgery, so you get to go home the same day of the procedure. During the recovery process, you can expect to take medication for pain management, walk on crutches for a short period, and attend physical therapy to achieve optimal results. We support you before, during, and after your treatment so that you never feel alone and always stay informed.
