Re: hip dysplasia

Wow - this could be my story. I started having pain in my hip over 10 years ago. It was only occasional at first and tolerable. About 2 years ago I could no longer put off treatment. My MRI showed a labral tear and I was sent to a specialist. I had surgery to repair the tear and ended up in much worse shape - every step was painful. I should tell you that I do know a teenager who had a labral tear repaired she is playing sports again, no pain at all, back 100%. My story may not be the norm however I remember just before being taken into the OR the nurse mentioning that she really hoped it worked. If you decide to have it repaired you may want to ask how many people return to normal activities. Anyway, 6 months later I had a total hip replacement. That was 18 months ago and I am having the othe hip replaced in a few weeks. Same pain, same problem but this time I am opting to avoid the labral tear. He mentioned that I have mild hip dysplasia and that why I have another labral tear. Must run in my family - Mother, sister and 1st cousin all had THR.

Re: hip dysplasia

I have hip dysplasia, treated as an infant. I started to have problems in my thirties and have recentley had surgery for a labral tear. There is a risk of retearing, and also that the actual dysplasia caused more pain than the tear, but only time will tell on that one. If this arthroscopy doesn't help, I will be having a PAO to correct the dysplasia as the cartliage in my hip is still fairly good.
Hope this helps.

Re: hip dysplasia

Labral tear on the right hip, bursitis on the left, infant dysplasia on both.

Arthroscopy is on 5/28.
If this does not work, I will have the THR.
Please, do yourself a favor and have your doctor to tell you all pro and cons of the surgery, and whether or not you should opt in for the THR instead or go ahead with PAO.

Re: hip dysplasia

I also had the hip scope done for a labral tear. My doctor too had told me he wasn't optimistic about the outcome of the surgery - when my doctor got inside, he found the arthritis. Anyway, fast forward 1.5 years and I just had my hip resurfaced 3.5 weeks ago. Coming along great!
