TRANSMUSCULAR QUADRATUS LUMBORUM BLOCK PLUS PERICAPSULAR INJECTION VS. PERICAPSULAR INJECTION FOR PATIENTS UNDERGOING PRIMARY HIP ARTHOSCOPY

Brief description of study

The purpose of this research study is to compare two different treatment options on their effectiveness to reduce post-operative pain, narcotic (opioid pain medication) usage and recovery time. The first treatment option is a Transmuscular Quadratus Lumborum (TQL) block with hip incision site (Pericapsular) Injection. A nerve block is an injection of a local anesthetic (numbing medication) into an area surrounding a nerve to decrease sensation. The decrease in sensation means a decrease in pain. The second treatment option is a hip incision site (Pericapsular) Injection. Pericapsular injection is an injection of a local anesthetic (numbing medication) into the incision or hip portal sites to decrease sensation. All patients regardless of group assignment will receive a pericapsular injection as this is the standard of care for primary hip arthroscopy. However, patients who are assigned to to the nerve block group, will receive the TQL block in addition to the pericapsular injection.
