Bone is cut. Cuts are made in the pelvis, and realigned.
Bone is cut. When the hip joint is too anteverted or forward facing a patient can have in-toeing or "pigeon-toed" posture. A derotational osteotomy can correct this - the proximal femur is cut and "de-rotated" then fixed with a plate a screws. Hip anteversion is common and 99% of the time resolves naturally. Surgery should be reserved for only the most severe cases and done by an expert in hip osteotomies.
Possible pad use. You should let you surgeon know about this, as he/she may decide to reschedule your surgery.
