Watch the Video: Hip Dysplasia and Outcomes of Surgical Treatment

Thank you for your interest in the Child and Young Adult Hip Preservation Program at Boston Children’s Hospital.

"What can my patients with hip dysplasia expect after periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) surgery?"

"How will my patient's quality of life improve?"

"Will my patient need to modify her activity level?"

PAO patients — typically active teens and young adults — often wonder about their outcomes after surgery, particularly their expected activity level, quality of life and time to total hip replacement. 

In this 15-minute video, Travis Matheney, MD, summarizes multiple clinical studies that review these outcomes and provides information about patient satisfaction with their PAO surgery.
