Femoroacetabular impingement can lead to pain, limited motion, and decreased function in active adolescents and young adults. The condition arises from an osseous deformity in the proximal femur and/or acetabulum that results in abnormal joint contact force with hip range of motion. Damage to the labrum and articular cartilage develops with time, leading to early joint degeneration and osteoarthritis. In the symptomatic patient, early recognition and characterization of the deformity is critical to the success of surgical intervention.
