Hip arthroscopy innovation now employed at University Hospitals represents paradigm shift for the surgery

CLEVELAND – Orthopaedic surgeon, Michael Salata, MD, Director, Joint Preservation and Cartilage Restoration Center at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center and Associate Team Physician, Cleveland Browns, is the first in Northeast Ohio to employ a new technique that lessens complications when performing hip arthroscopy.
The minimally invasive procedure is used to treat labral tears, femoroacetabular impingement and other hip joint issues. Hip impingements are a significant source of pain and missed time for athletes in sports such as hockey, running, dance, soccer and football. An increasing number of high profile athletes have undergone this procedure to quicken rehab time and return to action sooner.
There has been a rapid increase in the number of hip arthroscopies performed in the United States over the past two decades. Though statistics vary, the total amount of procedures done in the US has increased by 250 percent since 2011.
