History and Evaluation: This young adult female patient presented with bilateral, activity-related hip pain. Her pain worsened over two years and was beginning to interfere with daily function and sport activities. She was diagnosed with bilateral acetabular dysplasia. Preoperative x rays show bilateral acetabular dysplasia (shallow sockets).
Treatment: Staged bilateral periacetabular osteotomies were performed to improve femoral head coverage and stabilize the joint. Postoperative x-rays show the repositioned hip sockets.
Outcome: 2 and 3 years after surgery the patient remains pain free and has returned to full activities.
