OHSU - Arthoscopy for Hip Pain

Do you suffer from hip pain?  If you're young and active, there's a new technology that can erase the pain without major surgery.   Andrea Herzka, MD, an orthopedic surgeon with Oregon Health Sciences University, joined us to talk about how arthroscopy can treat such problems as labral tears and cartilage injuries.

This cutting-edge technology is now used to treat injuries that could not be treated just 10 years ago. It's also hip preservation surgery and although the long term research is not yet completed, doctors are optimistic that this technology will prevent the need for hip replacement surgery.
