What is Hip Arthroscopy?
Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that allows an orthopedic surgeon to see
where the joint has been damaged or injured with a small lens and lighting
system (arthroscope). In hip arthroscopy, the arthroscope is placed inside a
person's hip joint through a small incision. The lens projects images onto a
TV, allowing the surgeon to use instruments to correct the injury.
