Return to sport after hip surgery for FAI

What is the rate of return to sport post-FAI surgery?

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a pathomechanical process caused by bony deformities at the proximal femur and/or acetabulum. The abnormal contacts between these structures at end ranges of hip motion can induce chondrolabral lesions within the hip joint. Hip surgery is an option for the management of symptomatic FAI, yet the indications remain controversial.
