Labral Reconstruction – Hip

Labral reconstruction may be necessary for patients who have had previous arthroscopic hip surgery in which a large portion or entire labrum was removed. The procedure involves the use of an allograft or the patient’s own tissue to reconstruct the labrum.


Weight-bearing is approved as tolerated after surgery, but crutches are required for two weeks post-surgery. For the first week, a hip brace must be worn at night while sleeping.
