History and Evaluation: This young adult female patient presented with worsening left hip pain. She had a moderate limp, fatigued easily and had pain with changes in weather. She was born with a congenital condition known as coxa vara which was treated surgically with bilateral proximal femoral osteotomies (PFO) as a child.
X rays show bilateral coxa vara and advanced osteoarthritis of the left hip.
Treatment: The patient underwent a total hip replacement because of the osteoarthritis present in her left hip. The procedure was more complicated due to the previous surgery, yet a conventional hip replacement was performed.
Outcomes: The patient is extremely happy with her surgical outcome and is free from pain.
