Hip arthroscopy gives a surgeon an unimpeded view of a patient’s hip joint, allowing diagnosis and treatment of many sources of hip pain.
Dr Sunny Randhawa performs keyhole hip arthroscopy surgery and is one of a select few surgeons in Australia that have completed a fellowship exclusively in hip arthroscopy. He performs these procedures at a high volume with consistently positive results.
The surgery itself involves the patient being placed under general anaesthetic (most commonly) and having a small camera placed into the hip joint. This allows the surgeon the vision to make necessary corrections and minimal incisions.
Hip Arthroscopy is suitable for a range of conditions:
Loose / foreign body removal
Hip washout (for infection) or biopsy
Chondral (cartilage) lesions
Ligamentum teres injuries
Iliopsoas tendinopathy (or ‘snapping hip’)
Trochanteric bursitis syndrome
Tight iliotibial band
Proximal hamstrings tears
