What happens during a retroversion hip surgery?

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.
