What is a Ganz Osteotomy?
The Ganz osteotomy is a treatment for acetabular dysplasia or a shallow cup. It is a specific type of Periacetabular Osteotomy or PAO where the cup is cut free from the pelvis and is moved to a more optimal position. When this operation is combined with a labral reconstruction, the hip feels more stable and comfortable. It also extends the durability and longevity of the hip joint. This combined operation is performed in two parts. In the first, I will reshape your ball and perform the labral reconstruction. The second part is the Ganz osteotomy. It takes place a week or so later and is performed by Dr. Presley Swann. This is a unique service, in that each of us does what we do best. When your Ganz is performed, I then help Dr. Swann with the repositioning of the cup and its fixation.
I perform 100% of your surgery and do not train fellows or residents. I take the responsibility you have entrusted me with very seriously and put everything that I have into your operation.
