How to prepare for arthroscopic hip surgery
In order to achieve the best results from hip surgery, the longer you have to prepare, the better. This is the perfect time to make sure your body is in the best shape for surgery, and a good time to prepare your home for your recovery.
Before your surgeon performs the surgery, he or she may have you:
- Get a physical exam, blood work and urine analysis to get a sense of problems that could arise
- Adjust certain medications like blood thinners
- Get healthy issues like diabetes or high blood pressure under control

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
As with any medical treatment, individual results may vary. There are potential risks and recovery takes time. People with conditions limiting rehabilitation should not have this surgery. Only an orthopaedic surgeon can tell if hip arthroscopy is right for you.
