Capsulotomy is typically performed during arthroscopic treatment of femoroacetabular impingement. As the frequency of hip arthroscopy continues to expand rapidly, increased attention is being paid to the implications of interportal capsulotomy and the need for repair. In order to minimize the risk of postoperative instability, capsular closure has been recommended to restore the anatomy and biomechanical function of the capsule. In this technique manuscript, we present a reliable, efficient, and effective method for arthroscopic closure of the interportal capsulotomy following hip arthroscopy.
