Arthroscopic Surgery of the Hip

I am wondering if anyone would be able to give me advice on what options there are out there for arthroscopic hip surgery. For the past 7 months of so my right side of my hip has been bothering me. This happened from a bicycle accident. When I am sitting in a chair with my right leg extended about an 80 degree angle from the knee I sometimes cannot lift my whole leg untill I raise it with arm 6 iches up and then it works great but untill that point I am very restriced in movement. I went to physical therapy for about 5 weeks and overall little change. Please if anyone has any suggestions or imput I would appreciate it.

Garrett,
i just read your post now and hope I can help.
I am also having problems, but with both my hips.
Arthroscopic surgery sounds like a better alternative to me than maybe later on needing hip replacements.

I called the hospital of special surgery in manhattan, new york (212-606-1000) to find out what doctors perform arthroscopic surgery of the hip. Someone there matched me with a doctor who takes my insurance. His name is Dr. Edwin su (212-606-1128). He specializes in arthroscopic surgery of the hip and performs many of them. I have an appointment with him in a couple of weeks to see if I am a candidate for the surgery.

I will probably go for a second opinion somewhere, but I don't know where just yet.

I don't know where you are from, but if you are near nyc, it may be worth it for you to get a opinion from him.

Good luck. Let me know how you are doing.
