Types of Hip Preservation Surgery and Treatment

  • Femoral Osteoplasty (Femoroplasty): Surgical procedure to correct an abnormally shaped femoral head or neck by shaving down excess bone.
  • Labral Repair: Surgical procedure to repair a labral tear and return hip function.
  • Microfracture: Common surgical procedure that works by creating tiny fractures in the underlying bone to develop new cartilage.
  • Labral Reconstruction: Minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery to repair the damaged labrum, partially or fully, with a graft.
  • Gluteal Tendon Repair: Surgery that repairs the gluteal tendon by suturing it back on to the greater trochanter.
  • Hamstring Tendon Repair: Surgical procedure to reattach the torn hamstring back to its original position.
  • Iliopsoas Tendon Lengthening: An arthroscopic procedure that lengthens a tight iliopsoas tendon that is causing pain and dysfunction.

  • Hip injection: An injection of medication to potentially relieve pain and inflammation.
  • Physical Therapy: Type of therapy that promotes or restores movement and manages pain.
