Appropriate identification and precise resection of the pincer lesion are integral parts of the arthroscopic surgical treatment of femoroacetabular impingement. Preoperative radiographic planning of the bone resection, as well as executing the plan intraoperatively using both fluoroscopic and arthroscopic cues, is critical to adequately removing the pincer lesion. We present our surgical technique of removing the impinging bone by defining the focal acetabular rim overcoverage, accessing the pincer lesion with labral detachment, and then performing acetabular rim resection.
