Osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip is a common diagnosis with multiple etiological factors. Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a disorder that is increasingly recognized as a cause of idiopathic osteoarthritis. Hip arthroscopy has gained popularity in the last decade as a treatment option for FAI. At best, marginal outcomes have been reported after arthroscopic management of OA. Arthroscopic management of FAI has evolved technically and has shown favorable short to midterm results. Indication and contraindications for the management of various patterns of FAI continue to evolve. The severity of OA present at the time of surgical management of FAI correlates inversely with outcomes regardless of the approach.
