Femoroplasty Research | Cam Impingement Treatment | Orthopedic Surgery New York
When abnormal hip anatomy restricts painless, smooth, and free movement of the hip joint, this is referred to as hip impingement. Cam-type impingement can typically be treated with non-operative options including rest, activity modification, and physical therapy. Dr. Nwachukwu may also recommend injections into the hip for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. If ongoing hip pain continues, then femoroplasty surgery is usually recommended in order to correct the bony abnormality as well as address any associated labral or cartilage injuries.
