Hip Impingement

Treatment Of Hip Impingement

With hip impingement treatment, your surgeon will reshape the junction between the head and neck of the femur using small mechanical resection devices called burrs. Performing this step as well as trimming any excessive portion of the acetabulum will give the joint more clearance, thus relieving the impingement. At various times during the surgery and immediately following it, your surgeon will test and monitor your hip’s range of motion.
