Dysplastic Deformed or Destroyed hips or those with AVN are best treated using the Ilizarov Hip Reconstruction operation which consists of two osteotomies done in the femur in a minimally invasive manner. Support is given to the hip and lengthening is performed as well.
We are among the very few hospitals in India where Safe Surgical Dislocation of the Hip (as described by Ganz ) is performed to preserve the Hip Joint. It is especially useful in dysplastic hips, in the aftermath of Perthes disease and AVN ( Avascular Necrosis) of the Hip Joint & can help avoid a Hip Replacement and prolong the useful life of the joint.
Joint Preserving Surgery of Hip in the Young
Young hips when damaged do not always need an arthroplasty. Hip Joint Preservation surgery has advanced dramatically. Not only Safe Surgical Dislocation of the Hip with osteochondroplasty and rim trim for Pincer FemoroAcetabular Impingement can be performed, but so can osteotomies such as the Ilizarov Hip Reconstruction to give long lasting results in young hips. Typical problems that can be solved are Avascular Necrosis of Hip ( AVN), hips dysplasia, residuals after Perthes and Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis.
