Although hip arthroscopy is the most-used treatment for femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), surgical dislocation maintains an important role in selected cases. In this video, we present the surgical technique for dislocation. The full access to the femoral head and to the acetabulum allows a complete treatment of the anatomic deformity of these structures. Various authors have reported that, if all the steps of this technique are followed, there is no risk of avascular necrosis. Although its invasivity is higher than arthroscopic one, it represents a safe and effective treatment when the arthroscopy could not restore a perfect anatomy.
