Hip Preservation Surgery
Treatment for Hip Dysplasia
Hip dysplasia is when the ball and socket joint of the hip is abnormally
shaped, causing it to dislocate more easily. This creates long-term wear
on the cartilage in the hip joint. However, hip preservation surgery allows
patients to maintain their hip’s health before the cartilage wears out.
Hip preservation surgery realigns the hip to allow it to move normally
in the socket. The International Hip Dysplasia Institute compares hip
preservation to “realigning the tires of a car”—by realigning,
you prevent wear on the “treads” of your hip joint, in this
case the cartilage.
