Dr. Stephan Yacoubian will be giving a lecture February 21st on Arthroscopic Hip Surgery to Athletic Trainers and Physical Therapy students at Cal State Northridge.
Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that gives doctors a clear view of the inside of a joint. This helps them diagnose and treat joint problems. During hip arthroscopy, the surgeon inserts a small camera, called an arthroscope, into the hip joint. The camera displays pictures on a television screen, and the surgeon uses these images to guide miniature surgical instruments.
Hip arthroscopy has been performed for many years, but is not as common as knee or shoulder arthroscopy.
