Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a common cause of painful hip in the young and middle-aged population. This condition frequently leads to a labral tear, damage of acetabular cartilage, and secondary arthritis of the hip. When nonsurgical managements are not effective, surgical procedures (open surgery and hip arthroscopy) are indicated. Due to its less invasiveness, hip arthroscopy has replaced open surgery during the last two decades. The effectiveness of arthroscopic surgery in pain relief for FAI syndrome has been well established. The procedure is also expected to slow or prevent further progression to hip arthritis. In this review, we provide the updated knowledge of arthroscopic procedures for the management of FAI syndrome.
