Femoral Osteoplasty

In cases where the labrum is injured because the ball of the thigh bone (femur) is pushing into the hip joint’s socket, osteoplasty may be needed. However, Dr. Bharam often advises non-operative measures such as rest, physical therapy or certain types of injections before recommending surgery.

Osteoplasty is the surgical alteration or reshaping of bone. When the femur causes the problem, Dr. Bharam often uses less invasive arthroscopic surgery to perform osteoplasty. He reshapes the ball of the thigh bone to relieve the pressure on the labrum so the hip can move freely, using small shaving instruments to remove the excess bone.
