Extra-capsular Arthroscopic Procedures

Not all abnormalities around the hip joint require open operation for correction.

There are occasions when tendons can be released, fluid-filled sacs can be drained, or those sacs (bursae) can actually be removed.  Conditions that can be successfully managed arthroscopically include iliopsoas tendinopathy, iliopsoas bursopathy, gluteal tendinopathies and greater trochanteric bursitis.
