I'm 26, my mother born w/ severe bilateral hip dysplasia corrected by surgery. Lifelong hip "catching" and clicking in joint, and pain. Poss dysplasia?

Now arthritis: Dysplasia correction involves cutting the femur and/or pelvis, and the changing the alignment to improve coverage of the ball by the socket.

What are the requirements for a young adult with hip dysplasia (23, F) to be a candidate for a Peri-Acetabular Osteotomy?

What are the requirements for a young adult with hip dysplasia (23, F) to be a candidate for a Peri-Acetabular Osteotomy?

Coverage: I would not hesitate to be seen for a more detailed explanation, but basically the procedure is done to improve acetabular coverage of the femoral head. So criteria would be a femoral head that lacks full coverage, usually by 39-40 percent, adequate range of motion of that hip, and lack of severe degenerative cahges in the hip itself. Again, don't hesitate to be seen. ...Read more

Will glucosamine and condroitin sulfate improve the residual pain from congenital hip dysplasia in a female adult?

Will glucosamine and condroitin sulfate improve the residual pain from congenital hip dysplasia in a female adult?

Not likely: There is little clinical evidence to support these supplements. Most research has been with osteoarthritis. These supplements are safe and well tolerated by most.

You should have an xray evaluation to find this out. ...Read more
