Endoscopic Gluteus Medius Repair

Academic Article


  • Endoscopic gluteus medius repair is indicated after failed conservative management for debilitating peritrochanteric hip pain. In our experience, most of these surgeries are performed on women, 45 to 75 years old. Often for undersurface high-grade partial-thickness tears and some small full-thickness tears, a single-row repair technique is performed. For larger, full-thickness tears, a double-row repair is often performed. For minimal, superficial, partial-thickness tears with a longitudinal component of tearing through the gluteus medius tendon, a side-to-side repair is performed. Short-term follow-up shows significant improvements in hip outcome score for activities of daily living and in numeric rating scale.
