About Corrective Osteotomy for the Hips

Pain in the hip or knee can be due to a deformity in the femur. This may have stemmed from a childhood disease, such as Legg-Calve Perthes disease or slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) or dysplasia. The university orthopaedic specialists perform corrective osteotomies that cut the bone and realign it to restore more normal alignment of the leg, thereby improving gait and generally reducing pain.
