Hip Arthroscopy & Joint Preservation

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is a center of excellence in hip arthroscopy and hip health joint preservation. Recognized by his peers as an expert, Dr. Phillip Langer, MD. is Double Board Certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery in both Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine. He completed an Arthroscopy Association of North America Fellowship in arthroscopic hip surgery and is repeatedly chosen to lecture on and teach hip arthroscopy to other surgeons on a national level. Hip Arthroscopy is a rapidly evolving field in sports medicine providing reproducible pain relief and functional return to sport/activity with the long term goal of hip health preservation and restoration of normal anatomy. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are not only at the forefront of the latest surgical techniques, but utilize biologics, such as PRP and stem cells, to address FAI, labral tears, as well as concomitant weight bearing cartilage pathology.

If you suffer from persistent hip pain caused by a hip abnormality or hip damage, turn to Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. Our team includes highly regarded orthopedic and sports medicine surgeons who specialize in arthroscopic technique to repair the hip joint. Whether you are competing in a professional sport or simply want to maintain a daily exercise regime, you can trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians to relieve your hip pain and help you regain full mobility through the most advanced and minimally invasive treatment methods available.

Hip arthroscopy can be used to treat a number of hip conditions including: Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI), Hip Labral Tear, Cartilage Injury, Torn Ligaments, Loose Bodies and Snapping Hip Syndrome. During hip arthroscopy, your physician will use small incisions to insert thin flexible instruments and a tiny camera to view the damaged hip area. Arthroscopy can be used to cut out and remove any torn pieces of cartilage in your hip and repair the tear with sutures. If necessary, bone may also be removed to prevent further damage from impingement.

Advantages of Hip Arthroscopy

Choosing a skilled surgeon who specializes in hip arthroscopy means you gain significant advantages from an effective and minimally invasive hip repair. The benefits of hip arthroscopy over the traditional open hip surgery include:

While most patients will need to follow a diligent physical therapy plan following arthroscopy, this surgical technique is meant to restore the hip anatomy and preserve your hip health on a long-term basis. We understand that every patient has unique needs and goals. You can trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians to deliver state-of-the-art, personalized care from your initial diagnosis until your final hip recovery.
