Hip arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that helps doctors diagnose and treat hip joint problems by providing a clear view inside the joint.

During hip arthroscopy, your surgeon makes a small incision and carefully inserts a narrow tube containing a fiber-optic camera - about the size of a buttonhole. The camera transmits images of your hip join to a video monitor. Your surgeon uses the images to guide pencil-thin surgical instruments to repair joint damage.
