It is important to understand the background and history of hip arthroscopy. The history and physical exam are equally important in order to determine indications for injury and if surgical intervention is needed. It is needed to understand the factors indicating whether or not surgery is the best method of action, and what is the best possible surgical treatment. Post-surgery it is important to understand the physical rehabilitation process all hip arthroscopy patients must endure after their procedure. By utilizing videos the entire rehab process, starting from the week of surgery and ending months later is demonstrated to help educate patients and clinicians. Reviewing the various exercises and when to utilize them is just as important as the exercises itself.


This course discusses the history, process, and expectations of hip arthroscopy and the rehabilitation of the hip after the arthroscopy. The two detail the operation and rehabilitation programs in their entirety, and they cover an abundance of specific information during the process.
