Heterotopic ossification (HO) after hip surgery is the formation of bone in non-skeletal tissue, usually between the muscle and the joint capsule. HO after hip surgery may be associated with clinical sequelae such as pain, impingement and decreased the range of motion, compromising surgical outcomes. A 20-year-old basketball player presented with a 2-year duration of the left groin pain after a basketball-related injury. Due to continued disability and failure of conservative management the patient underwent hip arthroscopy. No HO prophylaxis was given. Follow-up radiographs at 3 months after left hip arthroscopy showed Grade 3 HO on the left side. On the 2nd postoperative visit, the patient complained of contralateral (right-sided) hip pain. Due to continued symptoms on the right side and failure to respond to conservative management the patient underwent right hip arthroscopy.
