Hip Arthroscopy / Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopic surgery is a surgical technique that enables the diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic diseases involving the joint area with closed surgery techniques. In arthroscopic surgery, which literally means “looking into the joint”, an illuminated camera system (fiberoptic device) inserted into the joint can be used to examine the relevant area, diagnose the existing disease, and perform many therapeutic procedures in the same session. The history of arthroscopic interventions for the hip joint is relatively new compared to the knee and shoulder joints. However, it is rapidly taking its place in the treatment of diseases that cause hip joint pain, especially in young adult patients.

Today, hip arthroscopy is actively applied in joint cartilage and labrum injuries, especially the pathology called hip joint impingement (femoroacetabular impingement), which causes hip pain in young active adults and can cause joint calcification in older ages if not treated. All orthopedic surgical interventions require a team approach and harmony. Here you can see the details of the operation on a patient we applied hip arthroscopy, which we carried out together with my dear colleagues Op. Dr. Barış Kadıoğlu (@barkadi ) and Op. Dr. Levent Taşkıyan (@leventtasyikan), together with the hospital operating room team.
