Title: Femal derotation osteotomy
Post by: unhappy hip on March 31, 2017, 04:39:10 AM
I am a 47 year old male who has been prescribed a femal derotation osteotomy for my L hip by Dr. Buly at HSS in NYC. 

I would like to get a second option and would like to know what other doctors in the country are renowned for femal derotation osteotomy.

Dr. John Clohisy at Washington Univ and Dr. ira Zaltz in Detroit has been mentioned.

Any help with recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

thank you for your feedback.  I am not well versed in this site and don't know exactly where to post my question.

4 years ago I went for a run and had anterior hip post run.  MRI showed small labrum but with multiple intra articular injects which none gave any relief I was sent of to the back doctors thinking that it was referred pain from the back.  After much time spend working on my pre existing lower back pain I have concluded the hip pain a separate issue and than maybe the hip pain is even aggravating the lower back issues. 

Another hip doctor noticed I have a cam impingement and said that was my issue.  I then went fly to NYC to see one of America's best on labrum and impingement repairs to get his option.  He discover the femoral anti version (femur rotates inward) and referred me to a specialist for this.  So I have been diagnosed with femoral ante version and the surgery to repair it but its still a mystery why I have no relief (even brief relief) from the injections.  So before I sign up for surgery I would like to get a second option.  I am afraid to get the surgery if the ante version is really not the issue that is causing my hip pain.

I will you luck with you injection and hope it helps
