We describe a case of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) in a 21-year-old male U.S. Army Private. Pre-operative radiographs demonstrated a dysplastic bump at the right head-neck junction. The patient underwent arthroscopy and resection of the bump, resulting in a improved contour of the femoral head-neck junction. After standard recovery, he is now able to ambulate and flex his right hip without pain and has returned to full duty.
