Periacetabular Osteotomy (PAO)

PAO (Periacetabular Osteotomy): A surgical fix for hip dysplasia. Misalignment of the acetabulum causes pain and mobility issues. PAO repositions the hip socket, easing pain and delaying arthritis. It's ideal for younger patients, preserving the joint and restoring function. Complex but effective, it offers relief without immediate replacement surgery.

Hip dysplasia, or developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH), is a condition where the hip joint doesn't form properly, ranging from shallow sockets to complete dislocation. Symptoms include groin or hip pain, and diagnosis involves medical history and X-rays. Treatments range from non-surgical options like harnesses to surgery, emphasizing early detection for better outcomes.
