Lecture: Basics of Hip Arthroscopy
Hip arthroscopy is becoming a more popular procedure. This has come about with the better availability of MRI scans, maturing understanding of hip pathology and the development of hip specific instrumentation.
Patient selection is essential to a successful outcome.
This talk will introduce the typical patient symptoms and physical examination for intra-articular hip pathology.
It will outline basic imaging and then proceed to discussing the basic principles of hip arthroscopy and demonstration of treating hip pathology. This should provide the surgeon with a general overview for his journey on becoming a hip arthroscopist.
