A comprehensive study led by UBC Department of Orthopaedics resident Dr. Helen Crofts, along with co-authors Drs. Jordan Leith, Mark McConkey, and Parth Lodhia, challenges the prevailing myths surrounding hip arthroscopy.

As outcome reporting following hip arthroscopy has increased, there has been conflicting evidence as to whether there are sex based differences in outcomes. Published in “Arthroscopy: The Journal of Arthroscopic & Related Surgery,” their study of over 40,000 patients reveals there are no sex differences in outcomes following hip arthroscopy.
