Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Arthroscopic hip surgery entails inserting a small camera into the hip joint to enable the surgeon to view, diagnose and treat hip pathology of the labrum, articular cartilage, or other soft tissues surrounding the joint. The surgeon inserts other instruments through separate incisions to smooth off or repair torn cartilage, trim bone spurs and/or remove inflamed synovial tissue. The procedure takes 30-45 minutes.

Summary
Brief summary
Taking 10,000 steps a day is promoted by The Centres of Disease Control and Prevention, and The American College of Sports Medicine to equate to a healthy level of physical activity (Pate et al, 1995). Through the use of wearable activity monitors, this study will objectively quantify the limitation in physical activity that hip labral tear patients subjectively report. The study aims to determine whether hip arthroscopic surgery improves physical activity, pain, and quality of life. Satisfaction with surgery will also be assessed and provide further insight into the efficacy of arthroscopic hip surgery.
