Sports Injuries

Hip injuries are extremely common in competitive sports due to tremendous forces placed on the hips. Many professional athletes have undergone hip arthroscopy for hip injuries, including Alex Rodriguez, Mike Lowell and Kurt Warner. Hip trauma may occur due to a specific injury or may develop over time due to repetitive micotrauma.

Athletic hip injuries are commonly misdiagnosed as a pulled groin, sports hernia or muscle strain. However, if hip pain persists despite a trial of rest, activity modification and physical therapy, the hip should be further evaluated for a missed injury. When a hip injury affects athletic performance, arthroscopic intervention may assist in the athlete's return to full strength and possibly their athletic career.

Below is a list of professional athletes who have had hip arthroscopies:


Brandon Marshall, NFL Wide Receiver, Chicago Bears

Kurt Warner, NFL quarterback, Arizona Cardinals
