Periacetabular osteotomy: Indications | Procedure in Paris | Inside the Hip

Principle

Peri-acetabular osteotomy requires a precise evaluation of the morphology of the hip joint, as well as the cartilage status. In the first instance, a medical treatment is systematically favored, combining weight control, targeted muscle re-education and a course of anti-inflammatory drugs. Intra-articular infiltrations are also prescribed.

CARE

After failure of the medical treatment, the indication for peri-acetabular osteotomy is re-evaluated in the light of the cartilage damage already present, the level of disability, and finally the goals in terms of recovery.
