Favorable Patient Outcomes with Hip Arthroscopy

Many types of underlying health issues or injuries can cause debilitating hip pain. I see patients almost every day who are looking for solutions to hip pain that is disrupting their daily lives. Two common causes of hip pain are hip dysplasia and ligament teres tears. If you have been diagnosed with either of these, you have several options for treatment.

Hip dysplasia affects up to 44% of Americans according to the International Hip Dysplasia Institute, and, if left untreated, can lead to a hip replacement later in life. Ligamentum teres tears can also cause painful and serious problems if left untreated, including cartilage damage and dislocation.

As Medical Director at the American Hip Institute and American Hip Foundation, I have studied these conditions extensively, and have published hundreds of studies documenting the outcomes of various treatments for hip pain. In a recent publication, we found that patients with borderline dysplasia and ligament teres tears showed significant improvement after hip arthroscopy surgery. Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive hip surgery that can resolve many issues causing hip pain.

Through continued research and education, my goal is to continue to help patients come back from injuries and maintain a high quality of life. If you have been diagnosed with hip instability or suffer from hip pain, you might be a candidate for hip arthroscopy. The American Hip Institute can help you, starting with an in-depth evaluation of your hip condition and a personalized treatment recommendation.
