Hip Replacement and Pelvic Obliquity


Dr Sushrut Rajan, Nagpur

Hip and Knee specialist


Limb length inequality after hip replacement is one of the most common cause of patient dissatisfaction. Patients with gross pelvic obliquity/ spinal problems/long stading deformities are particularly prone to have the problem.

With PRE-OP DIGITAL HIP TEMPLATING, precise accuracy can be achieved in hip replacement.

An example

38 year old patient- both vertical and horizontal offset precisely restored. A patient with such a gross deformity, could sit on a low stool at 2 months postop. With gradual rehab, sitting on the floor would also be possible.
