Arthroscopic Partial Iliopsoas Tendon Release

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.

Hip arthroscopy with a partial iliopsoas release is performed on patients who have a history of an internal snapping hip. The snapping sound and sensation comes from the iliopsoas tendon and can lead to inflammation in the hip. This procedure is often performed with a labral repair and osteoplasty of femoral neck and acetabulum.
