The latest research indicates that labral tears are actually not the cause of hip pain. In fact, one recent study showed no association between hip labral tears seen on an MRI and hip pain. Hip surgery outcomes support this data with one recent study finding that 45% of patients that underwent hip arthroscopic surgery had poor results at an average of five years post-surgery. The results from surgery are even worse when a patient has even minimal hip arthritis. In spite of the surgery to repair the labrum, arthritis worsened in six of 10 patients when even a minimal amount of arthritis was present. During this outpatient procedure, our expert physicians use precise image guidance to inject custom concentrations of your body’s natural healing agents into the exact areas of damage to tighten and stabilize your hip for better function and mobility.
