A surgery for acetabular dysplasia, in which the acetabulum (bony socket) is freed from the surrounding pelvis, then turned to cover the femoral head to improve the mechanical stability of the hip joint. A PAO improves the function of your own hip joint and can halt the damage inside it.
A minimally invasive surgery used to treat damage to the interior of the hip joint. Repair of labral tears, cartilage damage, and bony recontouring is performed using small instruments under direct visualization with an arthroscope.
Surgical dislocation of the hip
A procedure in which the ball-and-socket hip joint is dislocated to enable surgeons to examine and access 360 degrees around the hip joint. It is an effective way to correct complex hip disorders not amenable to arthroscopic treatment.
Labral and cartilage repair
Repair of hip damage, such as a labral tear, and stimulating new cartilage growth (microfracture) are possible through both minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery and surgical dislocation of the hip.
Pelvic and femoral osteotomies
An osteotomy is a surgical cut into bone, to lengthen, shorten or change the alignment of the bone. Osteotomies of the pelvis and upper femur (thigh bone) are used to optimize the mechanical alignment and function of the hip.
A surgical procedure in which the hip joint is replaced by an artificial joint (prosthetic implant), usually a combination of metal and plastic or ceramic. Total hip replacement is very effective for treating arthritis of the hip.
