Treatment

Femoraoacetabular impingement (FAI) can be managed with conservative and surgical treatments.

Non-surgical methods are the initial course of treatment and may involve a change in your activities. Your doctor may also recommend an injection of medication into the hip or prescribe anti-inflammatory or pain medications.

If these methods do not help relieve pain, your doctor may suggest surgery to treat FAI. Surgery is usually performed through a minimally invasive approach with the use of poke-hole incisions and an arthroscope. Arthroscopic surgery involves using a small camera to view the damaged hip and make the appropriate repairs.

During surgery, your surgeon may repair the damaged labrum or cartilage in the hip joint. If you have signs of FAI, removal of extra bone from the femoral head or acetabulum will also be completed to help prevent impingement in the future.

Depending on your individual condition, your surgeon will choose the best treatment plan.
