  • Surgery approach

    Hip arthroscopy is designed to diagnose and treat a broad range of hip conditions causing the progression of joint wear, or arthritis. This technique offers advantages over traditional surgery; less postoperative pain and stiffness, reduces hospital stay, and notably quicker recovery.

    The surgery involves small incisions, or ‘portals,’ through which an arthroscope and surgical instruments are inserted. A camera on the arthroscope allows the surgeon to assess the hip joint and decide the most suitable treatment.

    Treatments include repairing labral and cartilage damage through sutures and stimulating new cartilage growth via microfractures. Bone spurs are trimmed, loose fragments of bone or cartilage are removed, and inflamed synovial pouches (trochanteric bursitis) addressed.

    Post-surgery, incisions are carefully closed and dressed. Patients are moved to the recovery room. Our focus extends beyond just alleviating pain; we aim to significantly improve your quality of life through top-tier orthopaedic care.

  • What´s included

    Online Meeting: Before your surgeon consultation, you’ll meet with our Patient Experience Manager to address question and to request your medical history, needed to ensure that both the surgeon and their team can thoroughly assess your case.

    Online Consultation: After a thorough review of your case, you’ll discuss surgical options, benefits, and risks during your initial consultation with your surgeon. Upon mutual agreement on the treatment, our Patient Experience Manager will outline contracts and payment details.

    Preoperative Preparation: Surgeon’s team will guide you through preoperative steps, including educational courses, tailored physiotherapy exercises, follow-up meetings and advice on preparing your home environment for post-surgery recovery.

    Surgical Procedure: You’ll complete pre-admission tests before your arthroscopy. Once cleared, you’ll have the surgery and briefly recover in the Post-Anaesthesia Care Unit. The minimally invasive nature of the procedure allows for quick evaluations, enabling you to go home the same or next day.

    Rehab and Follow-Up: Post-discharge, you’ll attend scheduled rehab appointments and a follow-up visit for stitch removal. Online sessions with the surgeon and physiotherapist will be available to ensure smooth ongoing recovery.

FAQ's

How long does it take to recover from hip arthroscopy?

The recovery period following hip arthroscopy varies between individuals. Generally, you might need crutches for a few weeks, followed by a personalised physiotherapy programme. Total recovery can take up to three months, though some may experience improvements sooner.

Why do you need a hip arthroscopy?

Hip arthroscopy is recommended to investigate and address a variety of hip conditions. This could include persistent hip pain unresponsive to conservative treatments, detection and removal of loose bodies, or repair of a torn labrum. It’s a minimally invasive approach offering quicker recovery times compared to traditional surgeries.

How to prepare for hip arthroscopy?

Like knee arthroscopy, preparation involves detailed discussion with your surgeon about your medications, adherence to fasting guidelines, and arranging transportation for post-surgery. Some patients may need a preoperative physical assessment to ensure they’re in optimal health for surgery. Mental preparation, understanding the procedure, and setting realistic expectations for recovery also play a key role.

What should I avoid after hip arthroscopy?

After hip arthroscopy, avoid strenuous activities and any movements causing discomfort. Initially, weight-bearing may be limited. It’s crucial to follow the recovery plan, including prescribed exercises and physiotherapy, for optimal healing and to prevent complications.

Is a hip arthroscopy painful?

Hip arthroscopy is performed under anaesthesia, so you won’t feel pain during the procedure. Post-operatively, some discomfort is typical but manageable with prescribed pain relief. Your surgeon and healthcare team will work with you to ensure your comfort throughout your recovery journey.

How risky is hip arthroscopy?

While hip arthroscopy is a safe procedure, as with any surgery, it carries certain risks. These might include infection, blood clots, and nerve damage. However, such complications are rare, and your surgeon will take all necessary precautions to minimise potential risks.

What is the most common complication of hip arthroscopy?

Complications from hip arthroscopy are infrequent, but potential issues can include temporary numbness, bleeding, and infection. Your healthcare team will carefully monitor your progress post-operatively and provide guidance to mitigate potential complications.

What happens if hip arthroscopy doesn't work?

Should hip arthroscopy not yield the desired results, further treatment options may be explored. This could include additional physiotherapy, pain management strategies, or potentially a more invasive procedure, depending on the underlying condition and your individual circumstances.

What is the success rate of hip arthroscopy?

The success rate of hip arthroscopy can be quite high, with many patients experiencing significant pain relief and improved mobility. The procedure’s success often depends on factors such as the specific condition treated, the surgeon’s expertise, and the patient’s commitment to recovery.

How long does an arthroscopy operation take?

The duration of a hip arthroscopy operation can vary but typically lasts between one to two hours. This timeframe can be influenced by the complexity of your condition and the specific procedures required during your surgery. Your surgeon will provide a more precise estimation.
