Knee immobilizer: There is no good brace for the proximal femur and hip joint. In this case the knee immobilizer is used to make it dfficult to move your hip in the wrong direction. Keeping the knee from moving forces the hip to rest too thus causing less stress on the proximal and distal femur. It should not be worn more than a few weeks so that weakness and stiffness occur. Pt is usually started.

Labral repair possib: Labral repair rather than excision is possible in some cases. This is done arthroscopically and is a same day surgical procedure.

Healthy diet: There probably is no specific item that will help after arthroscopic surgery a normal healthy diet will be fine probably more important is the proper rehabiliation of the knee and not returning to sports or work too quickly.
