Arthroscopic Labral Reconstruction
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique used in the treatment of sports medicine injuries. It involves the use of a fiber-optic camera, which we place into a joint through a small incision in order to visualize ligaments, cartilage, and soft tissue. Through another small incision, we can then use small instruments to remove or repair broken or damaged tissue.
Arthroscopy of the hip with labral reconstruction is a procedure that may be necessary if you’ve had previous arthroscopic hip surgery in which a large portion or the entire labrum was removed. Reconstruction is also sometimes indicated if the labrum is torn beyond repair.
