While hip injuries are often associated with older folks, people of any age can experience hip pain, especially those active in sports. Hip pain can be the result of a condition that has developed over time, such as bursitis and arthritis, or of an injury, such as a hip fracture or dislocation.

In some cases, and if not detected early, conditions such as hip bursitis and hip arthritis may create extreme bone and joint discomfort, making surgery a credible option for relieving your hip pain.

Make an appointment for evaluation if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Joint pain felt in the front of the hip, along the outside of the hip, in the groin or over the buttock area
  • Discomfort and swelling in the thigh and knee
  • Joint inflammation or hip muscle spasms, which may cause fluid accumulation in the hip joint
  • Limping or the inability to walk comfortably on the affected side
  • Inability to bend or rotate the hip
  • Soreness and the feeling of the hip throbbing while sleeping or resting
  • Fever, redness, and warmth—which are signs of infection

Hip Arthroscopy

Hip arthroscopy, or “hip scope,” is a minimally invasive procedure used to examine, diagnose and treat the source of hip pain or other condition in your hip. During a hip arthroscopy, an orthopedic surgeon makes small incisions at the hip and inserts a small camera called an arthroscope, as well as other surgical tools to perform the procedure, to examine the inside of the hip joint. Arthroscopy is commonly performed in an outpatient setting, allowing patients to go home the same day. Patients typically experience less pain and a quicker recovery with an arthroscopic procedure, in contrast to open surgery.

Hip arthroscopy at Central Indiana Orthopedics can be performed to treat the following hip injuries and conditions:

  • Labral tear repair
  • Hip impingement / femoroacetabular impingement
  • Removal of loose fragments of bone or cartilage, diseased or inflamed joint lining or bone spurs
