Hip arthroscopy is arguably the most rapidly growing field in orthopaedic surgery
Supportive evidence is growing for hip arthroscopy, a procedure once held in low regard by many orthopaedic surgeons and considered by some as a challenging procedure without an indication. According to one source, the number of hip arthroscopies performed will double by 2013. This year, CPT codes were officially introduced for arthroscopic acetabuloplasty, femoroplasty, and labral repair. Thus, it may be time to revisit and review hip arthroscopy.
