Common Treatments & Surgeries

Hip Arthroscopy

Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that helps doctors clearly view the hip joint. During arthroscopy, a surgeon inserts a camera through a small incision into the hip joint, and a screen is used to guide the surgical instruments. Arthroscopy is used to treat a variety of conditions such as like snapping hip syndrome, which can damage the connective tissue of the joint.

Hip Resurfacing & Replacement

Repair procedures may be required for patients with advanced osteoarthritis, but are not suitable for all patients. Your Orthopaedics East physician can perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate.

A total hip replacement is the traditional option for patients with advanced osteoarthritis. Generally, any replacement procedure, including hip resurfacing, is only performed for those who have exhausted their nonsurgical options and whose condition is significantly impacting quality of life. If you would like to be evaluated for hip replacement, please call our office at (252) 757-2663.
