Pincer-type femoroacetabular impingement is a common source of hip pain and instability, consisting of focal or global acetabular overcoverage of the femoral head. In the treatment of global pincer deformity, arthroscopic management allows for minimally invasive surgical management, with the goal of restoring hip biomechanics while preserving the acetabular labrum and cartilaginous surfaces. This chapter provides a concise overview of the current literature regarding the treatment of global pincer deformity while describing our arthroscopic technique.
