Hip labrum repair is an arthroscopic surgical procedure that treats torn labrum in the hip and alleviates associated symptoms. The outpatient process involves small incisions, arthroscopic camera, removal of damaged cartilage, and labrum reattachment using suture anchors. Physical therapy is crucial for recovery, helping patients regain hip flexibility, strength, and function through a tailored plan.
