Hip-Joint and Femoral Osteoplasty

One cause of hip-joint pain is called femoroacetabular impingement(FAI). This condition is often thought to be an early precursor to hip-joint arthritis and is characterized by the formation of bone spurs that surround the ball and socket hip joint. One of the treatments for FAI is to remove the bone spurs that surround the hip joint, a procedure called an osteoplasty.
