Clearwater Hip Arthroscopy
Minimally Invasive Hip Procedure
A Hip Arthroscopy Clearwater is a procedure generally done prior to needing a full hip replacement to diagnose issues or fix internal hip problems, such as bony overgrowth on the ball and socket, cartilage tears, and snapping hip symptoms. This procedure is minimally invasive and is performed with multiple small incisions and a camera promoting a faster, easier recovery time.
Hip pain can be caused by a number of different reasons. Some common reasons are:
- Traumatic Injury
- Overuse or aging
- Repetitive motion
- Arthritis or Osteoarthritis

Planning for Your Procedure
Hip arthroscopy may be performed before a bigger hip surgery, or it may be the only procedure you need, depending on your condition. Hip arthroscopies are done while the patient is under general anesthesia, so you will be asleep during the operation. In order for the anesthesia to work properly, you will need to fast for up to 24 hours before your procedure. The restrictions on when and what you can eat will vary, so be sure to ask your doctor what you need to do before the operation.
Patients who have been under anesthesia will be unable to operate a vehicle for at least 24 hours. If you are only receiving a hip arthroscopy and plan on going home after the operation, make sure you have someone who can drive you to and from the surgery center.
We know that surgery, even minimally invasive procedures, can be intimidating. Our knowledgeable team will be happy to answer any of your questions and address your concerns. Don’t be afraid to speak up! Providing you with the best experience possible is our goal.
