The hip joint

The hip joint is formed by the acetabular cavity and the head of the femur. The entire surface of the hip is covered with a smooth structure called articular cartilage which allows a smooth gliding between bones.

The practice of certain sports, especially soccer, tennis and martial arts, may cause the most common injuries such as sprains, injuries to the labrum and cartilage injuries.

Arthroscopy provides a good way to address problems within the hip joint with less tissue damage and faster recovery and comfort.
