About this procedure

Femoroacetabular impingement or FAI is a condition in which the femoral head, acetabulum, or both are shaped somewhat abnormally. Simply, the ball and socket do not fit perfectly, causing friction during hip movements, resulting in damage within the hip joint. The damage can occur to the articular cartilage (smooth white surface of the ball or socket) or the labral cartilage (soft tissue bumper that surrounds the socket).

Impingement can occur as a result of femoral sided impingement (Cam impingement), acetabular rim impingement (pincer impingement), or a combination of both which is the case in the majority of patients.1
