What is Hip Osteoromy?
Hip osteotomy is a surgical procedure performed to reposition or reshape the bones in the hip joint. It is commonly used to treat certain conditions or abnormalities of the hip, such as hip dysplasia or femoroacetabular impingement (FAI).
Hip dysplasia is a condition where the hip joint does not develop properly, leading to an unstable or shallow hip socket. FAI, on the other hand, is a condition where there is abnormal contact between the ball-shaped head of the femur (thigh bone) and the hip socket, causing pain and limited range of motion.
During a hip osteotomy, the joint replacement surgeon makes one or more cuts in the bones of the hip joint, which may include the femur, pelvis, or both. The goal of the surgery is to reposition the bones, improve the alignment of the hip joint, and relieve pain.
There are different types of hip osteotomies, including:
Periacetabular osteotomy (PAO): In this procedure, the surgeon cuts the pelvic bone around the hip socket and repositions it to provide better coverage for the femoral head.
Femoral osteotomy: This procedure involves cutting and reshaping the femur to correct abnormalities in the hip joint. It may be performed to address conditions such as FAI or to improve the alignment of the hip joint.
Triple osteotomy: This procedure involves cutting and repositioning both the pelvis and the femur. It is usually performed in cases where there are significant abnormalities in both bones.
Who is eligible for Hip Osteotomy?
Hip osteotomy is typically recommended for younger patients who have hip abnormalities that have not yet led to severe joint damage. The surgery aims to improve hip stability, reduce pain, and potentially delay or prevent the need for total hip replacement in the future.
Recovery after Hip Osteotomy or Hip Osteotomy Rehab
Recovery from hip osteotomy can take several months, and rehabilitation and physical therapy are usually required to regain strength, mobility, and function in the hip joint. The long-term success of the surgery depends on various factors, including the underlying condition being treated and the patient's adherence to postoperative instructions and rehabilitation protocols.
Hip Osteotomy Risks and Complications

While the overall risk varies depending on factors such as the patient's health, the specific type of osteotomy performed, and the joint replacement surgeon's expertise.
