Loose Bodies

Sometimes the articular cartilage or parts of the bones in the hip detach or chip, usually because of an injury. The resulting small pieces can drift around the hip joint, causing pain, irritation and movement problems.

This type of damage is usually diagnosed by an imaging test. If a loose body is causing pain or other significant symptoms, Dr. Bharam can remove the loose pieces with hip arthroscopy.
