The treatment of residual Perthes-like deformities in the adolescent and young adult is challenging and requires a thorough diagnostic evaluation, careful preoperative planning, and precise deformity correction. Intraoperative decision-making and flexibility are also needed to achieve the aims of treatment and optimize clinical outcomes. With appropriate indications and sound surgical technique, correction of these deformities can enhance function, decrease pain, and potentially increase the longevity of the patients’ native hip during a vital period in their life when they are likely to be at peak activity level and overall health. We provide our preferred technique utilizing a surgical hip dislocation with consideration of other concomitant procedures including periacetabular osteotomy.
