Hip Labral Repair

Treatment Of Hip Labral Tears

In this procedure, your surgeon will smooth the edges of the torn or frayed labrum using arthroscopic shaver blades or radiofrequency (RF) energy. Specially designed RF probes include flexible heads that allow your doctor to maneuver through difficult curves in the hip joint, remove torn tissue, and smooth the damaged areas. In some cases, the labrum may be repaired. For this procedure, anchors will be attached to the bone and sutures will be passed through the tissue. The anchors are used to hold the suture in place.
