Ganz osteotomy and hip replacement, can you tell me more?

Ganz Osteotomy: Surgery to change the shape of the hip joint typically involve re-shaping the shallow hip socket (acetabulum) so it is in a better position to cover the ball of the hip joint (femoral head). Osteotomies may be performed on the hip socket side of the joint or on the ball side of the joint (upper thigh bone). ...Read more

Had femoral osteotomy from perthese with 2 screws done 10 years ago got my screws out yesterday, will my hip be strong like it was before?

Had femoral osteotomy from perthese  with 2 screws done 10 years ago got my screws out yesterday, will my hip be strong like it was before?

Great question: I am assuming your procedure was done to help with joint alignment at the hip. It must've been successful if your surgeon was able to remove the screws. That you have not needed a hip replacement at this point is very good. Be sure to discuss your concerns with orthopedic surgeon as to the strength of your hip joint and any increased risk for arthritis of the joint later in life. Best of luck ...Read more

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

If i had scfe t age 14 and it wasnt corrected until i was 24 with hip resurfacing and greater trochanter osteotomy, how long for my hip muscles toheal?

The cause of your --: Pain might be the muscle slow to heal, or the wires/cables used to fix osteotomy or from the resurfaced femoral head. So one needs to identify the cause first responsible for your symptoms. Other causes could be pain radiating from the back, or from local nerves irritated by scar tissue from your hip or the osteotomy surgery. Discuss with your surgeon to establish the DX or get a 2nd opinion. ...Read more

Is hip pain after a knee osteotomy normal? I have had six knee surgeries in 9 years on my left knee and never had hip pain before.

Not often but can be: Osteotomies around the knee change the alignment of the limb to unload diseased portions of the knee joint. Changing the alignment at the knee changes the loading of the hip too. If a portion of the hip joint cartilage is now overloaded, that is one way you could have hip pain. Referred pain from the knee might cause hip pain, though a hip problem causing knee pain is more common. ...Read more

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

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
