At Mayo Clinic, you have access to the latest imaging technology to pinpoint the source of your hip pain. You can receive test results and a surgery date promptly. Mayo surgeons are skilled in the latest techniques to correct hip impingement, including minimally invasive options. Examples include:
- Labrum repair and reconstruction. These procedures affect the ring of cartilage (labrum) that follows the outside rim of the hip socket
- Decompression. This type of procedure reshapes the ball of the joint to help it fit more properly into the hip socket
- Osteotomy. Surgery on the pelvis can adjust the angle of the socket to help the ball fit more securely within the joint
