Thanks to ongoing improvements in technology, recent developments in surgical techniques, and the increasing acceptance of its benefits, hip arthroscopy is a field that continues to grow in importance. Smith & Nephew remains committed to partnering with surgeons to deliver the most innovative products in this area. We offer the broadest line of hip arthroscopy products in the industry, including creative solutions that meet the unique challenges associated with hip procedures.

Hip cannula set


Smith & Nephew's arthroscopic hip cannula set enhances your ability to gain optimal access to the joint space. The color-coded cannulae are compatible with standard length knee scopes, and the cannulae and obturators are available in both cannulated and solid varieties. Best of all, the system allows you to purchase individual components to fit your preferred surgical technique.

Developed in cooperation with J.W. Thomas Byrd MD

Shaver Blades

We offer a full line of extra length straight and curved shaver blades. Our unique 5.7 mm flexible cannula and slotted cannula permit the use of curved instrumentation, offering truly effective access to the joint.

Video Arthroscopes

Smith & Nephew VideoArthroscopes provide sharp images throughout the entire field of view with a standard 4.0 mm length, 30° or 70° wide angle.

Hand Instruments

Our hip-specific manual instruments include a patented, pinless hinge that enables manipulation and resection of soft tissue.

Hip Access System


System facilitates rapid portal creation, exchange, and instrument passage. The Smith & Nephew Hip Director Guide provides accurate and reproducible access to the anterior portal without the need for fluoroscopy. By reducing the number of attempts to gain entry to the joint, it reduces risk of injury and shortens overall traction time. A specifically designed T-handle, switching stick, portal enlarger and slotted cannula all facilitate rapid portal exchange and easy introduction of working instruments.

Developed in cooperation with Victor Ilizaliturri, Jr., MD



EFLEX ELECTROTHERMAL Probes are deflectable up to 100°. This feature gives you access to anatomy that is difficult to reach with conventional instruments. Available with Smith & Nephew TAC-S , ABLATOR , and LIGAMENT CHISEL Probe tip configurations, EFLEX Probes can help simplify complex soft tissue procedures like labral resection, synovectomy, scar tissue excision and release, loose body excision, and impinging acetabular contents.

Developed in cooperation with Marc J. Philippon, MD
