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.

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...
