When physical therapy doesn’t treat groin pain that worsens with activity, contact Dr. J.P. Begly for a consultation. The underlying issue may be hip impingement.
Patients with hip impingement are usually active individuals who experience anterior groin pain and pain worsening with activities. When symptoms persist, even with physical therapy and activity modification, Dr. J.P. Begly examines whether an underlying bone or soft tissue pathology is causing impingement.
Dr. Begly is one of the premier orthopedic surgeons in New England and an expert in this novel minimally invasive procedure.

Learn More About the Benefits of Hip Arthroscopy
Previous studies have demonstrated that hip arthroscopy is an effective treatment for symptomatic femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) in professional athletes across a variety of sports.
Elite basketball athletes who undergo hip arthroscopy for the treatment of FAI return to their presurgical levels of competition at a high rate.
Historically, open [surgery] reduction has been the standard of care for treating hip dislocations that require surgical intervention. When used appropriately, hip arthroscopy is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive treatment option for intra-articular pathology secondary to traumatic hip dislocation.
Hear What Our Patients Have to Say
I was experiencing sharp pains in the hip and groin area. It was really affecting my everyday activities. I’m usually super active, but just walking caused pain, and I couldn’t run or hike anymore. I did six months of PT, and then they referred me to Dr. Begly. We did an MRI, and I had a tear in my labrum.
The surgery was same day, and I feel much better now. I’m gradually getting my run distance back up while continuing to meet with my physical therapist every other week.
