Hip Arthroscopy Overview

Dr. Robert Boykin has extensive training in arthroscopic surgery of the hip, and offers this technique for a variety of hip conditions and injuries for patients in Asheville, Arden, Fletcher and surrounding communities.  Historically, hip surgery involved larger, more invasive incisions to treat pathology of the hip. Arthroscopic surgery has advanced making it possible for surgical repairs of the hip to be completed via a minimally invasive approach that improves overall recovery, and has shown to have good patient outcomes.

During arthroscopic hip surgery, Dr. Boykin uses a small incision to insert a camera and surgical tools to examine the damaged joint and/or injury. The image from the camera is then projected onto a monitor showing the surgical team exactly where the injury is and what needs to be done in order to repair and correct the problem.
