His leg was shortened and the hip was totally destroyed. This condition affects many children in Africa & Asia.He got an advanced SROM ceramic on ceramic hip. Not many orthopedic surgeons have the experience of performing a primary hip replacement in this condition. Most cases of dysplastic hips that undergo a hip replacement occur in developmental dysplasia of the hip. This operation of a total hip replacement for a hip destroyed by septic arthritis of hip in infancy is very rare. Dr.A.K.Venkatachalam has treated this condition in a few cases. One patient has been followed up for more than five years and she is doing well. Visit www, to see the results in previous patients.
