Hip Surgery

Whether you need traditional hip surgery or minimally invasive hip arthroscopy, you can rest assured that you’re in good hands at UnaSource Surgery Center.

UnaSource is a leader in minimally invasive hip arthroscopy. Adult and pediatric minimally invasive hip arthroscopy is available, and it may be used for labral repair. Total hip replacement is often used to treat osteoarthritis as well.

Minimally invasive hip arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that allows doctors to view the hip joint without making a large incision. During the procedure, the surgeon inserts a small camera, called an arthroscope, into your hip joint. The camera displays pictures on a video monitor, and your surgeon uses these images to guide small surgical instruments.

Because the instruments are small, the surgeon only needs to make very small incisions rather than the larger incision needed for open surgery. This means less pain and quite often a shorter recovery time.

Anterior or posterior approaches may be used, and patients may return home a couple hours after surgery. At-home recovery time is often minimal, and it may include visits from a registered nurse as well as outpatient physical therapy.

Minimally invasive hip surgery is one of our specialties here at UnaSource. See what some of our hip replacement patients had to say about their short recovery time and their overall experience here at UnaSource.

When Hip Surgery May Be Recommended

Non-surgical treatments can help reduce joint pain, and these treatments may include rest, physical therapy, and anti-inflammatory medications. When these remedies are not enough, however, traditional or minimally invasive hip surgery may be recommended.

Hip surgery can help relieve painful symptoms of existing damage to the labrum, articular cartilage, or other tissues surrounding the joint. Sources or causes of hip pain may include:

  • Femoroacetabular impingement
  • Dysplasia
  • Snapping hip syndrome
  • Synovitis
  • Fragments of bone or cartilage that become loose and move within the joint
  • Hip joint infection
  • Osteoarthritis
