What is Femoral Derotational Osteotomy?

Category: Surgeries

false

This surgery involves cutting the femur and re-positioning the ball of the femur in the hip socket. Sometimes the socket itself must also be resurfaced in order to have it contain the ball better. This is done in patients that have severely in-turned feet, or spasticity in the hip joint.
