Hip arthroscopy is a very effective surgery of the hip joint that is designed to prolong the lifetime of the hip. It alleviates hip pain caused by labral tears, cartilage tears, bone spurs, or arthritis. It requires only small incisions, through which a tiny camera and sophisticated, small surgical instruments are inserted. High-resolution cameras and monitors allow doctors a clear view of the hip joint area. This technique requires a high degree of surgical skill. The prestigiously trained Torrance Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group board certified surgeons have extensive training and experience performing this surgery, which can relieve disabling pain and improve joint performance. The procedure is typically outpatient and is less painful and invasive than joint replacement, and recovery is faster than after joint replacement surgery.
