Commonwealth Orthopaedics: Hip Injuries

11.23.2012 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

Jammal Brown has spent all of the preseason and regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. Brown attempted to practice earlier this month so that coaches could evaluate his performance since suffering from a hip injury, a torn ligamentum teres, that occurred during Training Camp. The right tackle underwent a hip arthroscopic procedure called arthroscopic debridement surgery at the beginning of the season, read more on the procedure below from Commonwealth Orthopaedics.

Hip Arthroscopy: Minimally Invasive Alternative for Hip Problems

Hip Arthroscopy will repair and restore the normal anatomy of the hip joint in a minimally invasive fashion, thereby allowing patients to return to everyday life, recreation and sports much more quickly. Commonwealth offers the latest minimally invasive techniques for hip arthroscopy to treat conditions such as labral tears, traumatic cartilage injuries, early osteoarthritis.

This video gives more information, including a patient's perspective, on hip arthroscopy.
