Femoral acetabular impingement is a condition in which an excess amount of bone grows along one or both of the bones that comprise the hip, a ball-and-socket joint. This gives the joint an odd shape and hinders smooth, natural movement. Over time, friction caused by the boney growths can damage the joint, causing stiffness, limited range of motion, and general discomfort. FAI is often the result of abnormal bone development in childhood.

At ORA Orthopedics in the Quad Cities, our doctors offer specialized care for patients who have varying degrees of femoral acetabular impingement. Depending on the extent of the hip impingement, prescription-strength anti-inflammatory medications or physical therapy may be recommended. Our doctors and physical therapists can also recommend helpful activity changes and behaviors to reduce strain on the affected hip joint. In the event that surgical treatment is necessary, ORA surgeons practice the latest advances in arthroscopic medicine to repair and clean out the damaged joint with minimal incisions.
