The Hip

Injuries, arthritis, and other issues can cause pain and affect your ability to use your hips.

The hip is a ball-and-socket joint, with the ball-shaped head of the thigh bone (the femur) fitting inside a cup-shaped socket in the pelvis (or hip bone). This structure provides stability and allows the hip to move freely and the upper leg to bend and rotate.

The hip can sustain tears to the cartilage or injuries to tendons. They also can develop bone spurs or “wear and tear” arthritis (osteoarthritis) as the smooth covering (articular cartilage) on the ends of the bones wears down. When that occurs, the hip joint can no longer glide smoothly and easily.

 

The Surgery

Hip arthroscopy, or hip scope surgery, is a minimally invasive operation that can repair these injuries and reduce pain. The surgery is done using a tiny, specialized surgical scope and camera, and special instruments that are inserted through tiny incisions around the hip joint.

Joshua Snyder, MD, our hip arthroscopy specialist, is skilled at diagnosing these injuries to the hip, and performing the surgery.

These are injuries and conditions to the hip that do not require replacing the hip joint with a total joint surgery.
