Hip Impingement (FAI) Surgery
Hip impingement, or FAI (femoroacetabular impingement), surgery is a procedure to correct the underlying bony abnormalities that cause FAI. This treatment works by shaving the bump on the femoral head (femoral osteoplasty) and/or trimming the rim of the acetabulum (acetabular osteoplasty). The femur will be dislocated from the socket to expose the joint for treatment. During surgery, the hip labrum will be evaluated and corrective procedures may be performed to repair the labrum as well.
