Hip labrum tear repair is a specialty of the best in class hip surgery specialists of Orthopedic Hip Surgeons of NYC – located on the Upper East Side in Manhattan, New York. A hip labral tear is an injury to the soft elastic tissue around the hip joint called the labrum.  A tear in the labrum of the hip is typically due to abnormalities in the structure of the hip joint, constant repetitive movement that stretches the labrum abnormally and from injury, hip fracture, or trauma to the tissues during sports or from an accident.

  • Labral tears are typically addressed by the NYC orthopedic hip surgeon with either refixation (repair of the labral tissue using suture) or debridement (removal of a small portion of the labrum) – the type of surgery best for you will be determined by your unique case.

Treatment of Hip Labral Tears

Our NYC orthopedic hip surgeons treat hip labral via minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery called hip arthoscopy – a minimally invasive technique for treating damage within the hip.

Hip arthoscopy is called “a key hole procedure”, and does not require the hip to be dislocated. With this contemporary technique an ‘arthroscope’ or tiny camera, is passed into the hip, so that the NYC orthopedic surgeon can see inside hip joint, and use instruments to carry out your unique repair. There is minimal discomfort associated with hip arthoscopy.

Every hip labral tear repair surgery patient requiring arthroscopy is unique. Generally, a patient may have damage to/ or separation of the labrum from the bony socket (acetabulum). Depending on the type of labral tear, the labrum may be either trimmed (debrided) or repaired with sutures. Various techniques are available for labral repair, mainly using ‘anchors’, which may be used to tie down the labrum to the underlying acetabulum, allowing it to heal in a correct position.

  • The best treatment of hip labral tear for you will be discussed with you during your consultation.
