Here's What Happens During Periacetabular Osteotomy

Periacetabular osteotomy is an operation performed on the hip. Its purpose is to correct a congenital deformity known as hip dysplasia, which can cause symptoms such as pain, stiffness, muscle weakness, and a limp. These symptoms are caused by the deformity of the acetabulum, which is the socket in the pelvis that cradles the top of the thighbone, known as the femoral head. Orthopaedic surgeons can perform periacetabular osteotomies to preserve the natural hip joint, rather than replacing it.

During the procedure, the orthopaedic surgeon makes precise cuts in the bone in the acetabulum area. These cuts detach the acetabulum from the pelvis. This allows the doctor to rotate it so that it covers the femoral head and corrects the anatomical deficiency.

MK Orthopaedics brings together leading orthopaedic doctors in our Joliet clinic to restore our patients’ quality of life through procedures such as periacetabular osteotomies. Call (815) 741-6900 and let us know how we can help you.
