Recently, the field and awareness of hip arthroscopy have significantly expanded amongst surgeons managing hip disorders. Pathologies arising from the intra-articular space of the hip joint, also referred to as the central compartment of the hip, remain the primary indications for this procedure. This chapter will focus on issues relevant to the arthroscopic access to the central compartment. These issues include the unique characteristics of the hip joint and surrounding tissues, relevant anatomical structures, the introduction of the standard portals used, their establishment and utilization, safety concerns and risks, the process of proper patient selection, and preoperative planning. This chapter provides the necessary base of knowledge needed prior to performing this procedure.
