What Is Hip Arthroscopy Surgery?

Hip arthroscopy Surgery is a minimally-invasive procedure used to evaluate and treat certain disorders of the hip. It is the alternative to open surgery where longer recovery periods are expected with an increased risk of infection and morbidity in older patients.


Hip arthroscopy Surgery is much better than traditional hip surgery in many ways. The main advantages of hip arthroscopy are faster recovery, smaller incisions and reduced stay in the hospital. Hip arthroscopy is not much common as other arthroscopies.

Why is Hip Arthroscopy Required?

This is a small representation of what may be the reason you need a hip arthroscopy Surgery In India:

  • Femoral acetabular impingement (FAI): There may be an overgrowth of either the thigh bone or the hip bone which causes improper contact at the hip joint. This could impinge on the structures of joint and as a result cause pain and limited movement.FAI is of two types: Cam lesion (abnormal thigh bone) and pincer lesion (abnormal socket/hip bone).

  • Labral tears: Labrum is the protective covering of the socket part of the joint. It may get damaged due to trauma, friction etc

  • Bone cysts: Commonly found in the hip bone (acetabulum part).

  • Tearing of ligamentum teres: The ligamentum teres connects the femur with the acetabulum. It contains a rich supply of nerve fibres and provides blood supply to the femoral head. Sudden trauma, twisting or bending movements can damage this ligament.

  • Synovitis: Inflammation of the synovial fluid (shock absorber) in the joint.

  • Hip infections: For treatment of hip infections

  • Trochanteric bursitis: Inflammation of the bursa (fluid-filled) space near the joint

  • Early Arthritis: where there are chances of stabilising the joints.

  • Psoas tendinopathy: The psoas tendon helps in the flexion of hip joint. But if the tendinopathy cannot be treated with conventional methods, arthroscopy can

Who is a Candidate for Hip Arthroscopy Surgery?

  • Candidates for hip arthroscopy surgery suffer from severe pain or experience decreased mobility that limits their ability to live a normal life. Candidates typically have FAI, a labral tear (which may or may not be related to FAI), hip dysplasia, loose bodies in the hip area, or another condition that leads to hip pain and loss of function.
 
  • Candidates for hip arthroscopy Surgery range in age from late teens to people in their 50’s and 60’s. Patients who are young and healthy, in particular, tend to be good candidates because they have less tissue surrounding the joint. Because the hip joint is located deep within the body, minimal tissue makes it easier for the surgeon to operate.
 
  • Hip arthroscopy Surgery is not appropriate for patients with moderate or severe arthritis. Instead, the best surgical treatment is a partial or total hip replacement.
 
  • It is important to note that surgery is not appropriate for every patient. It is also considered a method of last resort. Your physician will first recommend conservative treatments, including physical therapy, to help you manage your hip pain, swelling, and stiffness. If you are not able to achieve significant pain relief and mobility, your physician may conduct a comprehensive orthopaedic evaluation to determine if surgery is the appropriate treatment for you.

What are the Benefits of hip arthroscopy surgery?

Hip Arthroscopy surgery In India is beneficial in three ways: 

 

  • The risk of complications are lowered with the use of tiny incisions that curtails the chances of infections.

  • Post-operative pain is lessened as there is no need to cut muscles or tendons to repair the joint. Fewer cuts also mean that the process of recovery is much quicker.

  • The minimally-invasive nature of Hip arthroscopic surgery means that scarring is kept to a minimum.

What are the Advantages of Hip Arthroscopy?

Less Tissue Damage
Hip Arthroscopic surgery preserves muscles in three ways. First, the surgeon only makes a small number of incisions that are each approximately 1 cm long. Second, the incisions are made on the front side of the hip where there is naturally less muscle. Finally, the procedure is performed with highly specialized instruments that allow the surgeon to work between tissue. The surgeon does not need to cut or remove tissue in order to access the joint.

These aspects of Hip arthroscopic surgery are vastly different from traditional hip surgery. A traditional procedure involves a large incision that is approximately 10-12 inches long. Moreover, muscles and tendons are detached from bones and the femoral head is dislocated from the hip socket in order to have a complete view of the joint.

 

Less Postoperative Pain
Patients of Hip arthroscopic surgery In India usually experience less pain because there is less tissue that needs to heal. These patients also require less pain medication.

 

Faster Recovery
Recovery time depends on the type of hip arthroscopy Surgery In India performed. If the purpose of surgery is to remove torn pieces of cartilage or foreign bodies from the hip, the patient may be able to place their full weight on the joint after two or three days. Alternatively, if the purpose of surgery is to repair the anatomical structures of the joint, the patient will often be able to resume activities within 3 to 4 weeks. Those who work less physically demanding jobs often return to work sooner. Patients of traditional surgery may need up to 8 weeks in order to return to activities.

 

Shorter Hospital Stay
Hip arthroscopy Surgery In India is performed in an outpatient setting. Outpatient hip replacement, also called a same-day hip replacement, allows the patient to receive surgery and return home within 24 hours of their surgery. Patients can not only recover in the comfort of their own home but they are also able to avoid the cost of a hospital stay.

Hip conditions that can be treated arthroscopically

Some of the hip conditions that orthopedic surgeons at Medicare Spots may treat arthroscopically include:

  • Loose cartilage and bone spurs that come loose or break off and get caught in the hip when moving. Hip arthroscopy Surgery enables orthopedic surgeons to tighten and/or remove these loose bodies.

  • Impingement, which you experience as pain during hip movement. The condition occurs when soft tissue around the hip joint gets pinched or compressed between the top of the thighbone and the hip socket.

  • Hip labral tears, which occur if the labrum — the ring of cartilage that helps hold the ball of the hip in the hip socket — gets torn, frayed or damaged in some way. Labral tears are most prevalent among active adults.

As one of the most common hip conditions treated arthroscopically, a labral tear can result from an injury, dislocation, arthritis, structural abnormality, or wear and tear on the hip joint. If the labral connective tissue tears, frays or detaches from the bone, you can experience limited range of motion or pain and discomfort with movement.

Hip arthroscopy Surgery can be effective in treating labral tears not caused by arthritis. However, if arthritis is present, hip replacement surgery probably will be needed to treat the underlying cause of the tear.

Common Disorders of the Hip Arthroscopy

Labral Tears

Labral tears can occur acutely as a result of trauma or over a longer period of time due to naturally-occurring wear and tear (degenerative-type tears). Labral tears can be classed as posttraumatic, degenerative, or as a result of femoro-acetabular impingement or instability of the hip joint. Labral tears can be debrided or repaired depending on the type of tear.

Femoro-acetabular Impingement (FAI)

Femoro-acetabular impingement of the hip is a relatively newly-recognised condition and occurs from a combination of abnormalities of the femoral head/neck and/or the acetabulum. 


The anatomical deformity seen in a hip with FAI can be a bump (known as a CAM deformity) on the femoral neck, which impinges on the acetabulum when the hip is flexed and internally rotated. Acetabular deformity can also occur causing over-coverage of the femoral head. 


Impingement can then be caused by jamming of an abnormally-shaped femoral head into the acetabulum ring in forceful flexion and internal rotation or as a result of contact between the acetabular rim and femoral head/neck junction. As a result of this delamination (separation) of the articular cartilage and a labral tear can occur. There is growing scientific evidence that FAI is a precursor of osteoarthritis. Early detection and treatment of this condition can potentially delay the need for hip replacement.

Symptoms of Femoro-acetabular impingement

  • Groin pain or pain over the anterior side of the thigh
  • Difficulty putting on socks and shoes
  • Pain with prolonged sitting or driving.
  • A tendency to walk with the foot in an externally rotated (outward) position.
  • Painful clicking in the hip
  • Adductor symptoms (pain on the inside of the thigh)
  • A gradually reduced range of motion

Articular cartilage lesions

Repetitive impact, trauma or arthritis of the hip joint causes a gradual loss of cartilage which in some cases can lead to debilitating pain and loss of sleep. In patients with sufficient remaining cartilage micro-fracture can be performed, which involves making small holes through the surface layer of bone (subchondral bone) to increase blood flow from deeper, vascularised bone and help stimulate cartilage growth.

Pre-Surgical Checklist

In order for your surgical experience to proceed smoothly, each of the
following items must be completed prior to the day of your procedure.

Diagnostic Tests

  • Blood tests: Complete blood count (CBC), hemoglobin (Hb), blood pressure (BP), blood sugar, blood urea, etc.

  • Urinalysis: Calculation of specific gravity, presence of proteins, sugar, pus cells or blood. Examination of color consistency may be carried out.

  • Imaging tests: X-ray of the hip region to study hard structures. An MRI scan helps to visualise soft tissue structures.

  • Electrocardiogram: Heart function is studied by recording electrical activity of heart.

  • Renal function tests: To evaluate kidney function.

  • Liver function tests: To check for liver disease, because most of the drugs are metabolized in the liver.

Surgical Coach:

  • Staff will bring you to the operating room. You will be asked to position yourself on the operating room table. The surgical team will adjust your position, provide warming blankets, and ensure that all body parts are safely positioned and well-padded.

Surgery Procedure

Initially, when the procedure starts, the leg is put in traction. It is done so that the surgeon can insert the instrument, view the joint entirely and start performing the treatment. After the traction, a small puncture is made in the hip. The hole made would about a buttonhole size, for the purpose of an arthroscope. With the help of the arthroscope, the surgeon can view what and how the hip and its joint is present and also can identify the damage. Later other instruments are also inserted by making small separate incisions for the treatment of the problem. Based on the specific condition of the patient, different procedures are chosen and performed. 

The procedures usually done are smooth off or repair the cartilage, remove the inflamed synovial tissue or trim bone spurs, which are caused by Femoroacetabular Impingement or FAI. The total amount of time needed for the surgery depends on the procedure conducted and its associated tasks.

 
  • After surgery is completed you will be taken to the recovery room by the anesthesiologist and the nurses. Doctor or his assistant will go to the waiting room to speak with your family or designated person.

  • In the recovery room, an experienced recovery room nurse will closely monitor you.

  • As you wake up from the anesthesia, you will be transferred to a private second phase recovery room where your family or designated person will be able to see you.

Depending on your surgical procedure, you will either be discharged to home by the anesthesiologist or admitted to the hospital for further evaluation if medically indicated.

How long is the recovery after Hip arthroscopy surgery in India

  • For most patients, the recovery takes 2 to 3 months. This is a wide range because each individual recovers differently. Despite the small incisions, this is a major procedure. The early recovery is aimed at allowing the repaired tissue to heal and maintaining or increasing range of motion. Much of the later recovery involves rebuilding strength and range of motion, and allowing the many muscles that surround the hip to recover.

  • Return to sports activities takes time. Muscles must gradually learn to adapt to higher impact, twisting, accelerating, and decelerating forces. This should not be rushed.

Possible complications after hip arthroscopy surgery?

There are always some risks with any surgery, even arthroscopic procedures. These include possible infections and damage to surrounding nerves and blood vessels. However, modern surgical techniques and close monitoring have significantly minimised the occurrence of these problems. 


After surgery, some pain, tenderness, and stiffness are to be expected; however, you should be alert for certain signs and symptoms that may suggest the development of complications.

 
When you are discharged from hospital you will be advised on your post-operative care regarding suture removal and wound dressing.

Post-Operative rehabilitation & prevention of future problems

Post-operative rehabilitation is a key factor in achieving a good recovery and preventing any future problems. Prior to being discharged from hospital physiotherapy will be discussed and/or arranged with you if appropriate. You will also be advised on a home exercise programme consisting of stretching and strengthening exercises, which are vital following hip surgery. Results have shown that patients who comply with instructions and exercises prescribed by their orthopaedic surgeon and physiotherapist will have the best medical outcome following surgery.
