Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Hip dysplasia describes the abnormal development of the hip joint and is a frequent cause of hip pain, functional limitations, and secondary osteoarthritis. Hip dysplasia presents in the skeletally mature adolescent or young adult as activity-related hip pain. Several treatment options are available depending on the severity of the dysplasia, the location of the deformity, and the degree of secondary osteoarthritis. Surgical treatment options include hip arthroscopy, periacetabular osteotomy, proximal femoral osteotomy, and total hip arthroplasty.
