History and Evaluation: A very active 18 year old male presented with left hip pain from an injury during a hockey game. Imaging studies showed mild hip dysplasia, femoracetabular impingement and a labral tear.
Treatment: Despite mild acetabuar dysplasia on x-rays, the dominant diagnosis was thought to be femoroacetabular impingement. Therefore, the patient was treated by hip arthroscopy with femoral head/neck osteochondroplasty and labral repair.
Outcomes: The patient has had both hips treated. He has no hip pain, an excellent clinical result, and has returned to hockey without limitations.
