Right and Left Hip Torn Labrums – Can they be fixed at the same time?
Hi – My left and right hips both have a torn labrum. I am scheduled to have arthroscopic surgery on my right hip in June, but just found out my left is torn too. I have yet to see my surgeon yet, but does anyone know if he can do both at the same time? I was thinking it makes sense because most of the surgical time is prep time, so it makes sense. But this may not be possible due to my recovery and how hard it will be to have both hips out of commission. Anyone have any thoughts?
THX in advance.
