The various treatments for "bad" hips depend on just how bad and how they are bad. But remember,
the best thing is prevention. See the section on hips under topics for a more detailed discussion of hip growth structure. This section is slanted toward intervention.
Dr. Feldman's lecture is a broad discussion which considers hip problems (esp
. in neuromuscular disease). The perspective of what to do for which circumstance is given. Limitations we face are also discussed.
The Supero-Lateral Outcropping Bonegraft (S.L.O.B.) has gotten alternative
names including the Summit Shelf (SS) and the B3 (Big Blob of Bone). If that were not controversial enough, it is plenty, we preview an even newer surgery
to maybe replace VRO in paralytic syndromes. It's name is a temporary place holder referring to the axis of fixation freedom - Cafe' Door - to which it is
likened for more advanced readers. This last one is really peer level development communication.
