Home / Hip Arthroscopy


Arthroscopic hip surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that enables orthopaedic surgeons to see a magnified view of your hip joint (femoral head and acetabulum) using a specialised scope, placed through small incisions. The scope the surgeon uses consists of a flexible fibre optic tube with a small camera on the end that transfers images to a monitor for the surgeons to view.

The scope is also used for minor hip surgery procedures where the hip arthroscopy surgeon usually makes one or two additional small incisions in the skin and soft tissues so they can gain access to the hip joint and use the arthroscopic needles, scalpels or other special surgical tools necessary to complete the procedure.
