The key defining feature of minimally invasive hip surgery compared with traditional hip surgery is the surgical approach taken. In minimally invasive hip surgery the surgeon does not have to cut muscles to access the hip.
Hip arthroscopy is an excellent minimally invasive operation that allows thorough visualisation of the hip joint and is effective in diagnosing and addressing various pathology inside and outside the hip joint.
To date there is no radiographic study that is entirely sensitive or specific enough for the diagnosis of cartilage lesions such as labial tears or chondral damage. Hip arthroscopy is the only procedure effective in diagnosing these conditons.
Hip arthroscopy is a technically demanding procedure requiring in depth knowledge and specific training and education in its methods. A/Prof Munjed Al Muderis has extensive experience in this area.
