Procedure

On the day of surgery, you will meet with several members of the surgical team including your surgeon, anesthesiologists, nurses, and support staff. General anesthesia is administered throughout the procedure; you will be completely asleep. Your feet will be placed in special boots that allow traction to be placed on both legs. This allows surgical instruments to be inserted into the hip joint and the procedure to be performed. With these instruments, your surgeon will cut, trim, smooth or remove diseased tissue and repair the structures in or around the hip joint.

Hip arthroscopy typically takes 1 to 2 hours to complete; though the time to complete the surgery is dependent upon the extent of damage and the procedures required to correct the problem. Once the procedure is completed, the surgical instruments are removed from the body and incisions are closed using dissolvable stitches. A flexible hip brace will be placed around your waist.

Immediately following your surgery, you will be transferred to the recovery room (PACU). As soon as possible, you will be encouraged to walk with the use of crutches or a walker. The hip brace and crutches or a walker will be used for 2-8 weeks after surgery.
