Pelvic Osteotomy

Pelvic Osteotomy

Pelvic osteotomy involves reorienting or restructuring the acetabulum or hip socket to better accommodate the head of the femur or thigh bone. This reduces pain, improves movement and prevents injury at the hip joint. Pelvic osteotomy is indicated in various hip disorders such as developmental dysplasia of the hip involving acetabular dysplasia, subluxation and dislocation, avascular necrosis of the capital femoral epiphysis (Legg-Calve-Perthes-Disease), and neuromuscular hip instability. Pelvic osteotomy enhances the area of contact between the femoral head and the acetabulum so that stresses are distributed more appropriately over a larger area.
