If you’re an active person with hip pain, you may have hip impingement or a labrum tear. These conditions can be repaired with a minimally invasive, highly specialized procedure: hip arthroscopy. MedStar Health sports medicine orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Tepper and DocTalk host Mike Schuh discuss this surgical repair.
Learn more about the hip ball and socket, how cartilage wear and tear differs from arthritis, and when you should see a specialist so that you can keep moving. Dr. Tepper sees patients in Pikesville, Hunt Valley, and Westminster, Maryland, and is a national expert on hip arthroscopy. He is also the medical director for athletics at Stevenson University and on the medical staff for the USA Men's U-21 lacrosse team.
