Surgical hip dislocation is indicated in children for many conditions of the femoral head and femoral head/neck junction, including fractures.
- Femoro-acetabular impingement
- Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE)
- Perthes’ disease with subluxation, or hinging
- Acetabular and femoral head fractures, including osteochondral lesions
Surgical hip dislocation provides full visualization of the complete femoral head and acetabulum.
