In brief: Varies

If it is truly mild, it is likely no treatment is needed.
If you are symptomatic, but your dysplasia is mild, treatment is often focused on managing your symptoms such as in the use of anti inflammatories or physical therapy. Surgery is usually reserved for severe cases. Don't hesitate to be seen to discuss the specifics of your case with an orthopedic surgeon.
