Hip Arthroscopy Candidates Can Expect the Following Benefits
Some of the advantages hip arthroscopy offers include:
- Minimal tissue damage: Since instruments used for hip arthroscopy are thin and small, they require much smaller incisions to access the joint.
- Much shorter downtime: Because hip arthroscopy is less invasive than other orthopedic surgeries, there is less bruising, swelling, and pain to recover from, making healing easier and quicker.
- Less scarring: Smaller incisions mean smaller scars.
