Femoroacetabular Impingement Specialist in NJ

Femoroacetabular Impingement, or FAI for short, is a condition where a small, bony abnormality on the hip presses on the labrum, fibrocartilage around the hip socket, or the articular cartilage, protective covering over the hip joint surface. There are three types of impingement that can occur in the hip, too deep, over-coverage of a socket, more commonly known as Pincer Impingement, or non0rounded femoral head, known as Cam Impingement. The Pincer Impingement happens when the hip socket covers too much of the femoral head, and when the hip moves, the labrum comes in contact with the femoral neck just below the femoral head. Cam Impingement is the results of an abnormally shaped femoral head being forced into the hip socket. If the head is not rounded, it can cause damage to the surrounding cartilage and labrum due to the constantly circular rubbing.

Arthroscopic Treatment in New Jersey

Arthroscopic treatment of these type of hip disorders have become increasingly popular, and the experts at NJOI have performed numerous repairs of Pincer Impingements. In the event a Cam Impingement is not treatable arthroscopically, a femoroplasty may be performed. This procedure utilized small instruments that will remove the deformation in the femur and reshape the femoral head to be more easily accepted into the hip’s ball-and-socket joint.
