Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have been diagnosed with hip dysplasia again. I have had two osteotomies to fix them in and a hardware removal. I have excess bone growing in my pelvis as well along with some disc problems in my spine too. I am 27 and in good health otherwise. What is the usual treatment for second diagnosis of hip dysplasia?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. There is no set protocol for the treatment of hip dysplasia diagnosed again but usually, it is due to impingement due to bony overgrowth. So exactly the bony overgrowth needs to be seen by X-rays and CT (computerized tomography) scan images and then to decide and go about for the treatment. So if you want me to accurately tell you the treatment then you need to send me the X-rays and or CT scan images.

Probable diagnosis

Hip dysplasia post-op 15 years with pain? Impingement

Regarding follow up

Follow up with X-rays and or CT scan images
