Re: Hip Bursitis
Femuroplasty (I mispelled it in the prior post) is an arthroscopic surgery for resection of a cam lesion and impingement. I also had a labral repair and a partial synovectomy. It is something like plastic surgery. Like I said, it was a very technically demanding surgery. As with all arthritis you have damage to the cartilage but this surgery is to reduce the wear in the joint by removing the bone ridge that has developed on the femur. There is a an organization, The American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics, that is made up of Osteopathic Specialist and reports the advances in hip arthroscopy,
L.Knee: Arthroscopy: '98, '04, '06; ACLrecon: '02; TKA:'06
R.Knee: Arthroscopy: '06; TKA indicated
R Hip: Arthroscopy '08;
Gymnastics is fun at 18 but not at 40.
