Hip Labrum Tears

Anatomy, Pathology, and Treatments:

The labrum is a rim of soft tissue or fibrocartilage that surrounds the acetabulum (hip socket). The labrum adds to the stability of the hip by deepening the socket and protects the joint surface. The labrum can tear as the result of an injury, but is more often related to FAI. The labrum can also tear when there is arthritis in the hip, as a part of the overall degeneration of the joint. When there is a labral tear due to arthritis, treatment is usually geared towards treating the arthritic joint as a whole.

Symptoms
  • Pain in the Groin
  • Clicking
  • Sense of catching deep within the hip

Labral tears often cause pain in the groin or front of the hip during physical activity or with deep flexion (bending) and rotation of the hip. Some individuals with labral tears of the hip will also have clicking or a sense of catching deep within the hip during certain activities.

Dr.Jimenez is a great physician. My knee pain became very painful and friends thought I’d need a replacement. No. Dr.Jimenez injected into my kneecap and the pain stopped. He also repaired my ankle. Thanks, Gerry C.read more

Dr Jimenez and his staff are amazing. Dr. Jimenez replaced both of my hip joints the left in December and the right in June. I had a lot of arthritis and no cartilage and a bone spur. Since my surgeries I can say I am pain free and it actually feels like I was born with my new hips. The anterior approach is a very fast recovery Thanks again Dr Jimenezread more

Today is my two year kneeversary, and I couldn’t be happier. I struggled for YEARS, and couldn’t keep up with my four kids, let alone get around comfortably at home. Dr Jimenez literally gave me my life back, and I’m so appreciative! I suffered all day, every day, and now I don’t even think about my knee once. So freeing! Thank you so much for helping me Dr J! You’re the best!!!read more
