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...

Dr told me have l hip dysplasia. Mri shows asymmetrical hypertrophied muscles on right side -is this to laterally rotate r side to make even with left?

Compensatory changes. More than likely the left hip dysplasia is causing asymmetric gait which is being compensated for by hypertrophy of the right pelvic and leg muscles. Since you do not provide any information about the severity, symptoms or x-ray findings, it would not be appropriate to comment on treatment. Read more...
Compensation. The right side is doing more/different work than the left, so the muscles have become larger to handle the extra work. Read more...

If you have 1 hip dysplasia and your biomechanics change, can it because a false acetabulum formed above the normal one?

Hip dysplasia. Correct. A pseudoacetabulum forms above the normal location when the hip is chronically dislocated and doesn't dock into position normally on the developing pelvis. This leads to shuffling gait, leg length shortening, and decreased range of motion. Read more...

I've 3 CT scan & 15 X-ray of pelvis in 2 yrs for study of fracture of left acetabulum. Is so many x-rays & CT harmful? Specially for male genital?

Unlikely. The amount of radiation you received does not reach the threshold to be worried about cancer. Check out website xrayrisk.Com and radiologyinfo.Org to get more information. I am sure the xrays and ct scans were important to provide treatment of your fracture. Read more...

What are some treatment options for a 2 year old with hip dysplasia who's acetabulum is not developing 5 months after her spica was removed?

I think the best. Things for this two years old to have pelvic osteotomy to get the acetabulum deeper and get cover for the head of the femur. Read more...
It depends. Depending on the level of severity of acetabular dysplasia, the options range from observation to osteotomies (reshaping the pelvis). When my patients are concerned about the progress of the hip in dysplasia, i encourage the family to seek a second opinion. This can help the families to be more comfortable with the treatment plan. You can go to www.Posna.Org to find a local pediatric orthopaedist. Read more...
