Surgery for Torn Labrums in Reno / Carson City

You may have heard of labral tears in the shoulder, but did you know that you can also experience a torn labrum in your hip? It’s true — a labrum is a cup-shaped piece of cartilage that lines the socket portion of a ball-and-socket joint, helping the joint to move smoothly, and you have labrums in your shoulders and hips. People may sustain a torn hip labrum in sports requiring repetitive, high-impact movements. Labral tears can also result from conditions causing abnormal hip movements — such as femoroacetabular impingement — as well as from osteoarthritis and other degenerative conditions. A torn labrum can cause pain in your hips, groin, and buttocks, as well as stiffness, an unsteady feeling, and a clicking sound. Fortunately, if you have a hip labral tear and you’re in the Reno or Carson City area, you can turn to the experts at Swift Institute for treatment.

Treatment for a Torn Hip Labrum

In many cases, patients are able to relieve the symptoms of a torn hip labrum using conservative, nonsurgical treatments. These might include pain relievers, anti-inflammatory medications, corticosteroid injections, and physical therapy. In more severe cases, however, surgery may be required to repair or reconstruct a torn hip labrum. If you do require labrum surgery, you can rest easy knowing that Dr. Rueben Nair — one of our experienced sports medicine physicians — has extensive experience performing arthroscopy of the hip with labral repair and reconstruction.
