Labral reconstruction is a well established technique but only available at a few centers in the UK.
In a small number of cases the acetabular labrum shows more extensive damage than anticipated at the time of hip arthroscopy. Following labral resection, some patients may require a further specific procedure in order to reconstruct the labrum. This is also performed using an arthroscopic technique requiring general anaesthetic and an overnight stay. Donated tissue or the patient's own tendon may be used in order to reconstruct the damaged labrum.
A complex rehabilitation program with intensive physiotherapy follows the surgery and crutches are required for approximately six weeks.
