Hip impingement (Femoroacetabular impingement)

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

Nationally recognized expertise

Each year, Mayo Clinic doctors diagnose and treat more than 2,000 people who have hip impingement.
