Was diagnosed w/ hip dysplasia and femoral anteversion and dr recommended osteotomy. After seeing CT scan he said osteotomy won't help pain. Why?

I can only guess tha: -on the CT there was a significant degenerative disease, or that the osteotomy will not give U adequate coverage. Or maybe femoral osteotomy along with an acetabular procedure still would not help if there was very poor bone stock on the acetabular side. ...Read more

Anything you can tell me about femoral anteversion?

Anything you can tell me about femoral anteversion?

After birth, in most kids the legs rotate externally. In some kids with the pfa, they don't and start standing or walking with feet turned-in (toeing-in), hence tripping over their own feet. Externally rotating hips helps. ...Read more

It's normal: You are correct. Femoral anteversion and internal tibial torsion are normal variants that almost always go away without any treatment. I have never treated any of my patients with corrective shoes, bars, pt or other similar treatments. The work of lynn staheli (http://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=kzyikwwjn8e) has demonstrated that it doesn't help. If you feel uncomfortable, get a second opinion. ...Read more
