Hip Arthroscopy Surgery from Orthopedic Specialists in the Quad Cities


Hip arthroscopy surgery is both a viable diagnostic tool and treatment option for athletes and adults with chronic hip pain. If you would like to learn if you are a candidate for this minimally invasive procedure, turn to ORA Orthopedics in the Quad Cities. Since 1963, generations of families in Davenport, IA, Bettendorf, IA, and Moline, IL, have placed their orthopedic health in our hands. As our patient, rest assured that you will receive attentive, personalized care from experienced sports medicine specialists who can help you return to the activities you enjoy.

Hip arthroscopy surgery involves the use of an arthroscope, which is a thin, pencil-like instrument with a small video camera affixed to the end. The arthroscope is inserted into the hip joint through a small incision and sends detailed live images of the joint onto a large monitor for the surgeon to view. This allows the surgeon to confirm a diagnosis or repair damaged joint structures without making large incisions, and often results in less post-operative pain and a shorter recovery period.

At ORA Orthopedics in the Quad Cities, our fellowship trained and board-certified sports medicine orthopedic surgeons practice the latest advances in arthroscopic medicine to help restore comfort and range of motion in patients who do not respond to nonsurgical treatments. This procedure is used to diagnose and treat patients with a variety of hip problems, such as:

  • Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)
  • Snapping hip syndrome
  • Loose bodies of bone or cartilage around the hip joint
  • Dysplasia
  • Synovitis
  • Hip joint infections
