MODULAR STEMS FOR COMPLEX DEVELOPMENTAL DYSPLASIA: Equalising, Stabilising, Mobilising

“When Hannah came to my clinic she had difficulty walking due to severe pain in her right hip, as well as ongoing back and knee problems.
After the initial examination, it was clear that one of Hannah’s legs was significantly shorter than the other. She had been struggling her whole life with developmental hip dysplasia and – with no prior surgery – was finding it increasingly hard to cope.
Hannah needed a total hip replacement. And this was truly going to be The Everest of hip replacement surgery. Since Hannah’s socket was partially formed and also in the wrong place, my team and I would need to determine where to place a replacement – without the usual anatomical landmarks to guide us.” Source: http://www.complexhipsurgery.com/
