Hip Arthroscopy and Rehabilitation
When performing hip arthroscopy, there are two compartments. The first is the central compartment in which the labrum can be repaired as well as removal of the pincer deformity.
– Anatomic labral refixation
The second portion of the procedure involves performing a femoral osteochondroplasty or CAM decompression. Once the CAM has been removed, the hip can moved to ensure that enough has been resected. Finally, the hip joint capsule must be closed and in some cases tightened in order to reestablish the biomechanical properties of the hip joint capsule.
