It could cause futur: The femoroacetable Impingement (FAI) can be treated non-operatively but usually the labrum tear can often be treated through an an arthroscope. You need to discuss in depth with your physician and orthropedic specialist. Be certain to see someone experienced with arthroscopic hip surgery and even get a second opinion.
