Hip arthroscopy with Dr. Jon Henry
Thursday, June 4, 2015
Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique used for hip impairments, often as the result of hip impingement problems. Watch as Orthopedics & Sports Medicine BayCare Clinic orthopedic surgeon Jon Henry, MD, tells us what hip arthroscopy is, what it is used for and what advantages it has over traditional methods.
“Arthroscopically we can either remove or repair, or sometimes reconstruct, the torn labrum or take care of damaged cartilage,” says Dr. Henry.
Candidates for hip arthroscopy often include active individuals who suffer from pre-arthritic hip pain. Small incisions are used to correct conditions such as labral tears, cartilage conditions, ligament tears and specific problems related to hip dysplasia.
